Christopher Mitchell Photography | The Veteran Project

The Veteran Project is a way to tell the story of veterans through photography. It's also a way to bring awareness to veterans. The faces that are forgotten and pushed aside. Myself and my husband are both veterans. Although we didn't serve a twenty year term, we both were enlisted and served. We fulfilled our contracts and received an honorable discharge. We are both veterans, although not retired. Most people think veterans are retired and have spent most of their life in the military. That's not the case at all. As I photograph veterans and tell the stories that they share with me, I hope you will have a better understanding. Also, I will hope that you realize that its not over when you come home or finish your contract. It stays with you for the rest of your life and its not always easy to deal with.
