As a Veteran and former Second Lieutenant of the U.S. Army, one of my biggest privileges has been to take photographs of my fellow Native Veterans throughout the years for ICTMN.
In honor of Veterans Day 2016 – here are photographs of so many of you Native veterans who have served in war and in peace, in struggle and peace; stateside and overseas and along our Nation’s coastlines.
If you understand such terminology as ‘good to go,’ ‘hua’, dress right dress, muster, ‘at ease’ and much more, this day is in your honor.
To all of those veterans out there who served and to those families who lost someone, a most blessed Veteran’s Day to you all. I thank all of my fellow veterans for their service to this country.
