Veterans' Views is a juried exhibition highlighting photographs taken by members of our nation's armed services and relating to their military experience. The primary goal of the exhibit is to raise awareness of our veterans' experiences during service to our country. 

This exhibit features 60 photographs from 40 veterans across 12 states. Veterans from the Navy, Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, Army Reserve, Missouri National Guard, and the Army Corps of Engineers submitted photographic memories of service tours ranging from 1946-2017, reaching from Missouri to Japan.
