THEY MAY HAVE BEEN HEROES
A photography exhibit titled,
"I Was A Soldier,"
by St. Louis photographer, Jerry Tovo,
is now on display at the
Missouri History Museum.
Tovo, a former drill sergeant from the
Vietnam era, has set out to photograph
veterans from that war who are now homeless.
In cooperation with the Veterans Administration,
he will be visiting cities from coast to coast,
photographing the faces of soldiers
who have returned . . . but are now
on the streets or in shelters.
The exhibit will grow as Tovo adds
more photos, and the traveling show
gives voice and awareness of the plight
of an estimated 200,000 homeless veterans.
