SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Some local photographers are using their skills to give back to veterans.
Photos for Soldiers is a nonprofit organization that started up this past January.
Photographers offer their services free of charge to men and women about to be deployed. They also take photos of loved ones that can be sent overseas.
“How can you put a price on what they do for our country? Doing photos through Photos for Soldiers was the least that I could do,” said photographer Lynn Marie Chapman.
Photos for Soldiers only had one photographer when it started, but it’s grown since then. More than 127 photographers participate all over the country.
