If you are a Photographer who wants to honor America's veterans, today's episode of The PhotoTellers is for you!
Thanks to The Texas School of Professional Photography, Mr. Robin Janson joins the show for the second year in a row. Last year he discussed his for-profit work in Photography, this year's conversation is the opposite. Robin kindly sat down for a few minutes to discuss his volunteer work with HONOR FLIGHT, and challenges you, Photographer, to serve the cause.
What is Honor Flight? Their website explains it best:
"Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices. We transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill.
Of all of the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as a nation—and as a culturally diverse, free society. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, an estimated 640 WWII veterans die each day. Our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out."
A brief conversation, in less than 15 minutes you'll learn:
- Specifically what Robin is doing for the vets he meets
- What it's like to travel through the airport with these vets
- How you can get involved, too
