Participants in the National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic in San Diego, California

 

In honor of the day we celebrate veterans who have served our country, a gallery of images from a shoot I did for Sports Illustrated last year: http://archive.toddbigelowphotography.com/gallery/Injured-Vets-for-Sports-Illustrated/G0000IdG1YXI4WnE

These vets, mostly from Iraq and Afghanistan though also from Vietnam, left an indelible impression on me as true survivors. They had such positive energy and didn’t seem to view their serious injuries as a great burden. What examples of determination, humbleness and appreciation of life.

With love and respect to these fine vets and all those currently serving, or having served, our great nation.
