I keep feeling the pull to begin photographing veterans. I want to do a piece that will highlight our veterans and also provide a voice to them and what their needs are in coming home, resources for employment, financial, whatever. It is a topic that I want to title, "Finding the Forgotten". I am hoping that in providing a voice to my fellow comrades that it will assist in my recovery from my own PTSD. It is a topic that is haunting me and persists in my head and heart.
If you are someone who has served at any tme and would be interested in participating in this project, please use the link below and let's begin a conversation. If you are someone who could possibly employ a veteran or a company that could provide services of any kind, please use the link below so we can also begin a conversation.
As I mentioned I am having my own struggles with PTSD (non-combat related) and this project may not get off the ground for a period of time as I'm workng through my stuff right now. But I will get back to you. Here is the link:
