Look At This: Portrait Of A Homeless Veteran

A few weeks ago, photographer David Gilkey and I went to an event for homeless veterans called Stand Down. We wanted to see what homeless veterans look like, and we wanted to photograph them.

We also wondered: How do they see themselves? We asked about 20 of them — that's how many came by our pop-up portrait studio. You can hear from some of them in the audio above, or just look at this.

In the audio of this story, MCRD is incorrectly defined as Marine Corps Recruitment Depot. It is Marine Corps Recruit Depot.
