In honor of Veterans Day I wanted to share a special project with you all. These are the movie style posters I created for the Vet Tix organization. I really wanted to give these images the full Hollywood treatment of action and intensity. A ton of compositing work went into these, sometimes seaming together 5 different bodies to make one. These were all labors of love for an amazing cause. Please share the Vet Tix message and story with any veterans you know so we can give back to them. Thank you for your service and God Bless all our troops and their families, today and everyday!
Giving Something to Those Who Gave.
Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix) provides FREE event tickets to family members of troops Killed In Action (K.I.A.), our Military and Veterans to sporting events, concerts, performing arts and family activities.
Attending these events reduces stress through entertainment, strengthens family bonds, builds life long memories and encourages service members to stay engaged with American life and local communities.
Giving free event tickets is an expression of appreciation, acknowledgement and an enduring symbol that we, as a nation, honor the service of our troops today and long after their tour of duty has passed. Helping our veterans attend events provides positive family and life experiences after their years of service to our country.
WHY WE DO THIS
Our military shoulders unique burdens of stress and sacrifice. 16.6 million Veterans have served during wartime. 3.6 Million Veterans have service-related disabilities.
2.5 million Service Members have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Almost 1 million have served multiple deployments. Since 2002 over 50,000 Americans have been wounded, over 1,500 are now amputees and 6,795 have been killed in action. We want to honor and support those that served and sacrificed so much.
Wounds of war, both mental and physical, can stay with our veterans the rest of their lives. Giving to our veterans and supporting the transitions back into their families and communities, is a gift of gratitude in which we all can take part..
