M.D.K.



MDK joined the Marines for the discipline and sense of purpose that military service brought into his life. While away on his second deployment, MDK’s family suffered the untimely death of his sister. MDK felt as though his parents needed him, so he left the Marines. It was difficult for him to find his place outside of the Marines, and MDK had problems with drugs and the law. At the time of his participation in the Photovoice project, MDK was receiving treatment through the VA and trying to find a new purpose for his life.
