Veterans display artistic talents at Ft. Meade


They served their country heroically but today they expressed themselves artistically.

The annual Veterans Creative Arts Show took place Wednesday afternoon.

Veterans from Fort Meade and Hot Springs submitted a variety of entries from different mediums including paintings, drawings, and even music and wood work.

National Creative Arts Show Coordinator Kyle Doerges says tapping into a veteran's creative side is often a big part of rehabilitation, "It allows some expression, maybe not verbal expression but more of a creativity and a way to express what you're feeling on the inside, kind of an outlet to let people know what you're feeling, I guess."

The winners from today's show will move forward to the national competition in October in Milwaukee.
