LINCOLN, Neb. (WOWT) -- In an effort to increase awareness and dialogue about women Veterans, a photographer from the U.S. Office of Veterans Affairs is documenting the "many faces of the roughly 2 million living women Veterans" from across the nation.

USVA photographer Gene Russell will be in Lincoln from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, March 4, at the Lincoln Community-Based Outpatient Clinic at 600 S. 70th St. to take portraits of the first 100 women Veterans to register.
