Wisconsin Veterans serving Wisconsin Soldiers, Families, and Communities

Profile/Comments:
Why do I photograph Veteran Events?

I joined the Army when I was 17 and served for 6 years active duty and 2 more as a Reservist. The military became my family... parents, sisters and brothers, they helped shape my young life into something positive and good. During my short time in service, I learned so much and was given more than I could ever hope to explain through words.

I may not be "in" service anymore, but I still feel that connection and want to be able to do what I can to give back to those who have done so much, for not only myself but also all of us. I found that this is what I can do... I can help share the stories of our Veterans, our active duty, Guard, and Reservists. I can help give voice where not all voices are heard and I hope to help document the great service that our Veterans still give to our country and us every day.

The images in this exhibit, as well as more on my website, are based on my volunteer work with different Veteran groups in Wisconsin and Illinois. Some images come from the desire to just document the event for the people who work so hard to put it together and for those attending to help remember it... so many images attach themselves to my heart as an artist and a Veteran...

I hope you enjoy my photographs as much as I enjoyed making them!
