The People of Pueblo

Pueblo is known as The Home of Heroes because of the four Medal of Honor Recipients that are from Pueblo. While this a fact that cannot and should not be disputed, it is also representative of Pueblo as a community.  Home of Heroes, everyday heroes, heroes that get up everyday, head to work to provide for themselves, their families and contribute to the community. I intentionally left out our firemen and police officers because they are a different kind of hero that receives recognition in a different way. This portrait series is about lesser known and appreciated heroes, business owners, business professionals and the everyday working person. We have them all, and the following is just a small cross-section of the diverse working population of the everyday heroes of Pueblo.
