ABOUT THE GUARDiANS: NEVER forget their story
In 2017, photographer and disabled Veteran Michael Thomas started a photography class in partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project in which he taught veterans photography as a means of coping with the stresses of combat and loss. After hosting a couple classes and interacting with multiple veterans like himself, Michael Thomas decided to initiate a photo project that would document his brothers and sisters that have donned the uniform in service to this country. Thomas said, “If we can partner together to make sure no-one’s sacrifice goes undocumented then we can change the way people perceive us as veterans, as warriors; as husbands and as wives. I want to tell our stories and I want people to understand what putting on a uniform means,” says Thomas.
