Virginia Currents: War Veterans Portrait Project; WCVE at 50

Thu, 11/13/2014 - 10:31am -- WCVE

Photographer Mark Mitchell and his assistant Caroline Martin record the stories of war veterans for a portrait project called “When We Were Young.” Having served during WWII and the Korean wars, these veterans share stories that reflect times of bravery, tragedy, dedication, duty, solidarity, and even humor. The Virginia Currents crew left the photo/interview session touched by the moving accounts of these humble and proud war veterans.
