Madp is a resident of Portland who constantly travels to photograph military funerals and memorial services in Washington, Oregon and other states.

He doesn't make money at it, and Q only releases photos to organizations like when the families authorize it.

His presence has been received well at most of the events but there have been some rough spots. Over time though people seem to increasingly understand that he is only an advocate for the families and those who died serving their country.

The Washington state Veteran's Affairs office believes Madp's efforts are worthy of honor.

It reads: "This certificate is but a small measure of appreciation for your constantly outstanding efforts on behalf of veterans and family members of this state.Your contributions have made their lives more meaningful and and reflect great credit on you."

For his side of it, Q Madp says the recognition is great, and it shows him that his efforts are not going unnoticed.

Q Madp of for his work with veterans

"It was an honor to receive this and to know they they know I'm out here. It was even more of an honor having received this on the same day as Lt Murphy received his Medal of Honor. I hope that this will draw more attention to our heroes that gave their all for this country!"
