Q: How much does it cost?
A: Absolutely nothing! Stacy will provide each veteran a free high resolution file of their portrait, which they may use for private purposes. They may have them printed wherever, and however, they choose.
Q: What are the pictures used for?
A: The primary use is for the veteran – a gift of thanks for their service, free of charge. No portrait is used for any other purpose without the veteran’s consent. There have been printed exhibitions across the US, and Veteran’s Day tributes showcasing some of the VPP portraits – highlighting the veteran’s service.
Q: Do I qualify?
A: You do not have to be a member of any veteran organization to participate, nor a veteran of foreign war. As long as you served, and are a DD Form 214 holder, you qualify. Active duty, Guard and Reserve personnel presently serving are eligible as well.
Q: What do I wear?
A: You can wear whatever you like – uniform or civilian clothes. Bringing a military memento or old photo always helps, and is encouraged, but it isn’t necessary.
Q: Can I be photographed with my spouse?
A: The VPP is reserved for veterans only. If your spouse is a veteran, they’re welcome to pose with you. If they are not, it’s “time permitting” only, with no guarantees.
