University of Alabama Student Looking for IOP Post Veterans - Share Your Story!

"I am a student at the University of Alabama, and I am currently writing multiple essays dealing with active and retired military. Specifically, the process and aftermath of returning home from deployment.

To this end, I am looking for veterans willing to talk with me about their experiences relating to this topic. I will be in Isle of Palms for spring break all of next week (3/11 to 3/17), but I would like to use some of that vacation time to talk with any of your post members that might be interested in sharing their stories with me. Please let me know if this is a possibility, and thank you so much! "

-Luke Schoenwetter

If you are willing to share your experience, please contact Luke directly to coordinate some time with this young man next week. He can be reached at lrschoenwetter@crimson.ua.edu.

Women in the Military - Vogue Magazine's 125th Series

Jackie Nickerson and Alessandra Codinha created a wonderful project for Vogue Magazine's 125th Series. It depicts the women in combat dating back to the American Revolution. It is incredibly inspiring. Support the women in service and the Veterans who have returned from combat for they most often go unrecognized.

"I wanted to make pictures that empowered women, that captured women who were strong, who are part of defending the USA. They did not disappoint."

— Jackie Nickerson on photographing some of this generation's crop of women warriors for Vogue's 125th series, American Women.
