JR Ancheta, UAF Photojournalism student – A couple of weeks ago I wanted to do something for this year’s Veterans Day that would recognize active-duty military and veterans on campus. Instantly I thought of making portraits of University of Alaska Fairbanks students, alumni, staff, and faculty who are veterans or active-duty service men and women. Early on I defined the term, veteran, pretty loosely: anyone who served or is currently serving in the five armed service branches of this country.

 A total of 36 veterans of different ages and backgrounds were photographed in this project. Each portrait is different, however, the one thing they have in common is their service for our country. These 36 men and women with their years in service spanning over 60 years represent the other veterans on campus I didn’t photograph. It is important to recognize them because of their service and sacrifice.
