The subject/story is not clear here - Focus/light is on the hands.

What were you trying to "say"?

The title says it all.

A "wounded warrior" is usually considered any vet who served on or after 9/11. I don't see any reference to which theater (or if Navy, which ship) this veteran served...would help for context.

The way you wrote this, it implies that vets who had no combat injuries are still called "wounded warriors". This does not sound right to me. In addition, I've heard the term used for vets of much older conflicts who were wounded in combat and especially those who still have problems related to their injuries.

Certainly an interesting character study here. I'd like to see more sharpness in his face. It seems like there is some front-focusing going on here - his shirt seems sharp but face is soft. I'd say Vietnam War is likely his vintage. I have a similar shot that I took during the motorcycle rally in Hollister that I'll post in a separate thread.

The sentence you quoted refers to what has been designated for veterans receiving benefits under the Wounded Warrior Project: to be eligible, it's vets post 9/11. AFAIK, older vets like to be referred to which theater they served (at least I found that to be true when working with Army personnel).
