|Visions of Valor Exhibit|
Visions of Valor is the first and largest exhibit of its kind in American history to honor the commitment and character of recipients of the Medal of Honor, our nation’s highest military award for valor under fire.
This exhibit of black-and-white photographs from famed portrait photographer Nick Del Calzo is intended to educate the public about the Medal of Honor and to perpetuate the patriotism, courage and honor of its recipients.
TriWest Healthcare Alliance has acquired two Visions of Valor collections—each containing 140 portraits depicting America’s Medal of Honor recipients. These portraits depict all that is noble and brave about America’s most decorated heroes.
“The humility and heroism of these great patriots shines through every photograph, and it is our extreme pleasure to be able to share their incredible faces—and, indeed, incredible stories—with this portrait collection.”
– David J. McIntyre, TriWest President & CEO
Of the two collections, one is being permanently displayed at the Pentagon. The official presentation of the Visions of Valor collection to the Pentagon occurred February 3, 2006.
The second is a traveling exhibit which is being displayed at military and public venues throughout the West Region. The first-ever unveiling of the other collection took place on December 7, 2005, at the Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center in Phoenix, Ariz. It then traveled to the Naval Medal Center San Diego and the United States Air Force Academy, Evans Army Community Hospital in Fort Carson, Colo. and the Hawai’i State Art Museum in Honolulu. The exhibit will continue its tour throughout the region, with more stops planned in Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Kansas and Missouri.
