I’m a veteran. And from a big family of veterans. So, perhaps I’m more aware of veterans events. But I don’t think so. The 21st century societal view of veterans is more visible and supportive than the past. It’s a good thing.
As a photographer I’ve been called on many occasions to support programs and capture “the essence” of the event. Wow. What an honor. So as we approach Veterans Day, here’s a few of my favorites from this past summer.

An international array of wounded warriors participated in the Warrior Games at Marine Corps Base Quantico including the archery competitions.
If you have a Veterans event you’d like photographed, PLEASE get in touch. We offer deep discounts to organizations in support of our fellow vets.
