#VeteranVisionProject ..... "To uphold family tradition I joined the Army right out of high school. Over the next 13 years I was reconnaissance while on Active Duty which included a tour in Iraq with the 1st Armored Division in 2003 and a medic in the Reserves. Today I'm doing a job that I love, cooking in a restaurant, while helping to raise my son." -Chris Lott, United States Army. Coffee Table Book: www.veteranvisionproject.com/book
