An art exhibit in Manhattan captures the struggles our country's veterans face when they return home from serving our country.
"Depicting the Invisible" by artist Susan Barron features portraits of 13 military veterans who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.
Their photographs are placed on black camouflage backgrounds to illustrate the dark times of their military service.
Smaller war time photos represent the common flashbacks experienced by veterans dealing with PTSD.
Also, footprints line the entrance of the gallery as a tribute to the 22 veterans who commit suicide everyday, that statistic is what inspired Barron to put this exhibit togehter.
"I really wanted to put a heart, a face and a name to this and stories to this statistics to really help make and help support our veterans when they come back, " said Barron.
The exhibit will be on display at the HG Contemporary Gallery in Chelsea through the end of the month.
