Featured Veteran(s): Rick Picard Nicole Locke

First off, we hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving near and far. For those who are serving and were unable to celebrate stateside, we want to say Thank You, and our prayers and good thoughts are with you.

The Big E, Springfield, MA, Veterans Portrait Project

We feature this week a father and daughter who both have served in the military. Both Rick Picard and Nicole Locke have served in the Air Force, while Locke is still active. Picard is a Vietnam Veteran who’s job was a weapons technician while his daughter, Locke, is currently in Emergency Management.

These two veterans were just two out of over fifty photographed at the Big E this year we had the honor to meet. A big thank you to the New England VA once again for having us at the Big E this year!
