Marine Corps Veteran Combat Photographer Adrian Weekly ‘20
It’s said a picture is worth a thousand words. For military service members who go forward into combat with a rifle and a camera, it’s more than just an adage. Syracuse University student veteran Adrian Weekly ‘20 knows this all too well.
“I had enlisted in the Marine Corps to be an aviation mechanic,” said Weekly, a senior at the College of Visual and Performing Arts, studying Communications and Rhetorical Studies. “Then some people found out I could draw pretty well, and I was made into a combat photographer instead.”
