Shrapnel is defined as: A fragment left from a bomb or explosion, that often remains in the soldier for life. Every combat Veteran leaves the battlefield with a life changed forever. These fragments of war leave behind physical and/or emotional scars that may never heal.
These American warriors have sacrificed so much for God and Country, and their stories need to be told.
As a photographer, I started Project Shrapnel both to bring awareness of and honor to these American heroes. I want their voices to be heard as the world needs to know the amazing sacrifices they have made, and continue to make, even off the battlefield. I am passionate about telling their stories through photos, as well as providing a platform where they can share their powerful experiences. I believe that by sharing their stories we can honor them and help countless others.
