Comments by Veteran Participants
of the Vet Art Project
"We are the spearhead of a movement. This is an exciting time in the history of what I see to become a great organization of veterans and artists collaborating. I think people are realizing that art, and the people in the art world are the key to helping veterans, and combating PTSD. I am proud to be a part of it, and thank you all."
—Matt Ping, U.S. Army E-4, 2004-2008, Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan), writer, sculptor,& musician
"It was an honor to work with professionals who really, truly and genuinely care about veterans and their lives. It's a great start to reaching out to other veterans and people."

"Veterans are the light at the tip of the candle, illuminating the way for the whole nation. If veterans can achieve awareness, transformation, understanding, and peace, they can share with the rest of society the realities of war. And they can teach us how to make peace with ourselves and each other, so we never have to use violence to resolve conflicts again."
-- Thich Nhat Hanh
