A recent exhibit at Western Bank in Silver City, entitled “Another Desert – Americans in Afghanistan” ended September 2014. Some of the paintings were dispersed to the various serving people who supplied the reference material with permission to paint from it, and their stories. Military life is so different from our civilian life, the people in the military deal with issues most of us never dream of. The June 2014 edition of Desert Exposure – www.desertexposure.com/201406/201406_painting_soldiers.php – carried a very nice story regarding the paintings, what they were about and why there were painted.
In gratitude to all of our serving people for all they contend with, both domestically and abroad; and a hearty salute to their spouses who endure long lapses of time without their loved ones, multiple moves and adjusting situations.
Truly, I am grateful. What you have given, and suffered, is a gift to all of us here at home in America.
