Many veterans come in dressed to impress. In McClean, Virginia, one of our veterans photographed that day was the epitome of that phrase. In fact, his attire was nothing out of the ordinary. This veteran told us he had this ensemble in many colors, so perhaps his Sunday’s best is his every day best.
Virgil Bandy is an Army veteran. He worked as a systems maintainer (or integrator) for a little over twenty years from 1984 to 2005.
Bandy was photographed for the Veterans Portrait Project a little over two years ago, and his fashion sense is still remembered! From casual to full uniform, we love when veterans dress to express their personality within their photograph.
