This is my statement for the exhibition:
Strong hard working women build a better more peaceful world. I chose to honour, a woman I admire, Air Force veteran Dana Mayer. Dana enlisted in the military after nursing school, later working as a transport nurse in Iraq and Afghanistan saving lives on planes, in hospitals and in villages. She is one of the four brave women represented in my “Portraits of American Veterans Project”. Women have a long history of service in the US military working hard, doing their jobs, with passion and commitment. Thank you Dana for your service.
