Q: I registered, what now?
A: It will likely take a while before you receive any communication from me. There are hundreds of registrations, fifty states, and one of me 🙂
Q: Do I need my full uniform?
A: Yes, you must be able to wear your full uniform in order to participate. You will also need to have a room with a mirror in it, because these shoots will take place inside of your home.
Q: How should I be dressed when you show up?
A: Civilian attire first.
Q: Is the photo project only for discharged veterans?
A: No, active duty, reserve and guard members are welcome to participate. You might be required to provide proof of enlistment/commission with a pay stub or a direct deposit within the last two weeks.
Q: Is deployment or combat experience required?
A: No. This photo project is to examine the stories of all of the men and women who served with integrity, no exclusions.
Q: Will my photo be in a book?
A: Maybe. However, seeing as how the first volume has already been published, it may be a while if your image is chosen for the next one.
Q: I was discharged, but it was not honorable. Can I still participate?
A: Maybe. This is looked at on a case by case basis. General discharge status will usually always slide. Anything beneath a general discharge (such as an OTH) may be evaluated with the utmost scrutiny. Dishonorably discharged service members may not participate.
Q: I am in ROTC or an academy cadet. Can I qualify?
Q: How long are the photo shoots?
A: On average, 15 minutes.
Q: How can I volunteer for the project to help in other ways?
A: There are two very important ways that you can ! Local volunteers to be potential guides and potential hosts are always needed. I always need someone to pick me up from the airport! So as a potential guide you would have your car, and be responsible for helping me navigate the city for a day to all of the photo shoots during a mission to your city. As a potential local host, you could volunteer to have me crash at your place while I am in town documenting.
