Honor Project

Veterans are all around us every day.

Many are strangers, neighbors, family, and friends.  

With more than 19 million Veterans in the United States today, every Veteran comes from different backgrounds, religions, race, sex, and age.  On a daily basis they go unnoticed in plain clothes, most not seeking attention.  

This project is designed to recognize and honor the brave men and women of our armed forces, those who sacrificed and fought for our freedoms.  

My mission is to photograph and honor as many Veterans as possible beginning in McMinn County and all surrounding counties, even expanding to other states if possible, during the upcoming year.
