AUSTIN, Texas — A photographer is documenting the stories and faces of some local veterans.

Belmont Village Senior Living commissioned photographer Tom Sanders to capture the photos and stories of its veteran residents for its American Heroes: Portraits of Service project.

On Thursday, 13 veterans at the Belmont Village West Lake Hills had their photographs taken for the gallery.

The photos will be added to the permanent gallery at Belmont Village, and the community will host a public exhibit opening in early 2019.
