USVAA works with a number of veterans and artists in all aspects of the arts. Each of them possesses a wide range of views regarding their personal philosophy about art, their work as artists and veterans, the military, their service, war and combat and the transition from military service to civilian life.

Andrew Wade Nunn

Andrew is a filmmaker and photojournalist. He is an Army veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

“I wouldn’t say that war inspires me. It breaks my heart. I have a talent for delivering images to peoples emotions though. If I can make someone care enough to have an emotional response, they may not remember my image, but they may have a better understanding of what war really is. Western society has been blessed with peace. If you don’t want to see the war, it’s fairly easy: change the channel, turn the page, don’t visit that website, and you’d never be wiser that a war is even going on.”
