Arkansas Veterans and their stories will be in the spotlight for Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System’s inaugural Faces of Veterans Project through Friday, Nov. 16.
The project began Nov. 5. Twenty four veterans from throughout the state and from all military branches will be featured in high-art photo posters throughout the John L. McClellan Memorial Veterans Hospital at Little Rock and the Eugene J. Towbin Medical Center at North Little Rock.
Also, each veteran tells their story in videos that will be posted to CAVHS’ Facebook and Twitter pages, according to a news release.
“Our veterans all have incredible life stories that should be shared with everyone in the state,” said Dr. Margie Scott, medical center director. “This project brings to life just some of the stories they have to tell, as well as the compelling stories written on their faces.”
The project reached out to veterans from World War II through current service, and includes three WWII heroes, Veterans of Korea, Vietnam, the Cold War, Dessert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation New Dawn. All branches of the military are represented.
The general public is encouraged to visit either facility to see the posters and to visit the CAVHS Facebook page and the CAVHS Twitter page to view the short videos. One or two videos will be posted each day.
