Band of Boxers
Photographer: Emilie Richardson
Exhibit Title: Band of Boxers
Location: Brooklyn, New York, United States
A group of veterans build a community through a boxing group at Gleason's Gym in Brooklyn. This tight-knit group excercise while building relationships -- along with the usual banter you might imagine from a band of brothers on the front lines.
Gleason's owner Bruce Silverglade created this program for veterans to train for free, after being contacted by the Veterans Affairs Hospital in New York City. A veteran himself, Silverglade said he "just wanted to give back to the veteran community."
The diverse group of vets from all areas of the military still find the same bonding environment, or as Army veteran Matt Williams said, "Leaving the military is like leaving home, and things aren't the same when you come back. Coming down to Gleason's is a release, you know, getting to see Sean (Marine veteran Sean Kraemer) and Steven (Army veteran Steven Camilo) is like seeing family."
