Our military service men and women have always been an important part of the Restless Heart family. On this Veteran’s Day, in honor of the ongoing sacrifice of our American troops, our proud veterans, the fallen, and their families and friends, we humbly present “Home.”
Our thanks to the active and former service members, families and professionals who submitted their photos for the video – we couldn’t have done it without you! Combat and field photos courtesy of the US Army; The US Navy, The US Air Force, The US Marine Corp and The US Department of Defense. Special thanks go out to the family of Matthew Brennan, Beth Nakamura and The Oregonian, Cade & Marcia Truitt of Inara Studios, Jenny GG Photography, and Lucky Dog Creative and Brett Noe Productions.
