The Tempered Steel Foundation, Uniting Wounded Warriors with the Public through Dialogue, is proud to announce The Tempered Steel Photo Introspective at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library with Keynote speaker Wounded Warrior and Comedian Robert Henline.
The Tempered Steel Photo Introspective, “Honoring the Wounds of War” is a cohesive effort by Photographer Micaela Bensko and journalist Amanda Cherry-Haus in culminating the stories behind the scars of war through imagery and interviews.
The photo exhibit is accompanied by documented interviews of the featured wounded warriors by Cherry-Haus, which are being cataloged in the Library of Congress.
Tempered Steel was founded by Iraq veteran and wounded soldier Sgt. Scott Stephenson and his mother Luana Schneider. The wounded warriors of the Tempered Steel Photo Introspective are all Iraq and Afghanistan veterans who have bravely unveiled their private scars in an effort to unite injured veterans with the public by eradicating the enigma that is the disfigured soldier. It is the goal of the Introspective to enlighten the public to the humanity within the warrior, the dignity within the scars, and the power of the human spirit.
The exhibit is open to the public of all ages, admission to the Library on Veterans Day is free with additional events on-going throughout the day to honor our country”s veterans.
