PELHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Jeff Rease is a full-time photographer, but he has found a part-time passion project in taking portraits of as many veterans as possible.

He’s photographed over 50 this year alone. Each family is given copies of the images to keep and cherish.

CBS 42’s Jack Royer came along as Rease photographed Navy veteran Dick Paxton in Pelham.
