Homes For Our Troops
Recently the non-profit organization,"Homes For Our Troops" contacted me to help them with a project. They asked me to photograph a local Iraq War veteran who suffered severe shrapnel wounds as well as the loss of both of his legs as a result of an explosion.
He is presently living in a rented home that is not handicapped accessible. This proves a great challenge as he continues his therapies to learn to become more mobile on his prosthetic legs.
"Homes For Our Troops" builds handicap accessible homes for them at NO cost to the vet, purely by generous time, labor and donations from corporations, businesses and volunteers.
I feel honored to be a small part of this wonderful endeavor!
