GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- A group of female service members are sharing their war stories through boots.
An exhibit titled, Her Boots: Step Up for the Stand Down was unveiled at Grand Rapids Community College Thursday.
The collection of combat boots was decorated by female veterans to help raise awareness about the issues female veterans face. Women make up eight percent of the veteran population and 300 veteran students study at GRCC.
"It's amazing, the different jobs and you don't think women can do some of them these, but the prove they can," says Jane Doyle.
Volunteers of America Michigan headed up the project, which began last spring. The exhibit will also be part of an ArtPrize piece that will be on display at Westminster Presbyterian Church.
