This is a tribute to wounded female veterans who have served and continue to serve in our military. More women are beginning to serve in combat zones and are coming back injured. Whether the battle scars are physical or psychological, the adjustment to handle this increase has been measured. This includes developing prosthetics or rethinking the approach of PTSD treatment specifically for a female veteran. The need to support female veterans will continue to grow as more serve in non-traditional roles in the combat zone.

I am Morris Asato or ‘Morey’ to some of my friends and an amateur photographer from San Diego, California. I have been using photography as a creative outlet for several years. As you can see from my images, I do cover a variety of subjects but the one element I try to bring to my composition is some blend of art and photography. Since a lot of my images are creative expressions of what I sense and visualize, the term creative art photography probably sums it best. My hope is that my images connect with others who can sense the feeling I was trying to convey. -- www.zenfotos.com --
