Give thanks and remember

 

Veterans Day.  This has been, maybe, the most difficult post I’ve written because I truly do not have the words to describe my gratitude for the men and women who have served our nation.  The only way I sought fit to show my appreciation is to honor them the only way I know how - through my lens.  This project has been on my heart for some time now, and with the help of my very good friend Preston Rudie, we were able to photograph some of our local veterans from WW II, Korea and Vietnam.  I have chosen this era of veteran because, for many, their stories may have been forgotten.  So today, please remember.  Remember their sacrifices.  Remember their pain.  Remember their faces because they represent the faces we see no more.  Remember because what they have done for us can never be repaid.

Thanks to all of you who have blessed this country with your service.
