On Veteran's Day we honor the men and women who have chosen a life of service, not only for their country, but the communities we care for everyday. In the week preceding 2017 Veteran’s Day I photographed the Veterans of Holy Name Medical Center to take an honest portrait of them, as they wanted to be represented. Looking at the images following each shoot was an emotional experience for many of them, as they hadn’t seen themselves like this in years. The people who were once serving our country are now nurses, vice presidents, software developers, clinical engineers, oncologists, paramedics, and volunteers from 21 to 99 years old.
