13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Narcotic Freedom.

My father was in the service for 22 years. He was badly injured and now has had over 20 surgeries on his body. He feels trapped inside his body due to his limitations from his injuries and medications caused from being in the military. One of the only places he feels free is in the mountains. He feels like he is able to process his emotions and get away from his medical issues.
