Serve the Warrior is happy to be collaborating with Military Experience & the Arts! Like STW, Military Experience & the Arts is a nonprofit, volunteer-run organization for Veterans.

JME began in 2011 in a college classroom and presently receives worldwide submissions from Veterans and military communities. MEA is currently working on their third volume which will feature 59 original artwork pieces. You can … Continue reading
