Artist Statement:

During April of 1972, the Vietnam War raged on. So much happens to a teenage-boy, serving with the USMC: Military Sexual Trauma, Spinal Cord Injuries, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Suicidal Ideation and Attempts. His life changed forever. This image as PTSD was at its height in later years demonstrates the chaos and trauma in a Veteran’s life. His life may even be threatened. Nearing 50 years later the struggle and suffering continue. Active support to veterans is the best way to say thank you!
