Late Memorial

The Sentinels
Pastel 16 x 20

My brother, Powder, was a veteran of WWII, he was awarded two Purple Hearts. My sister-in-law's brother, Neil Garrett, was a killed in the Korean War. Gene's uncle, Joe Montoya, was a veteran of WWII and was awarded the Silver Star. His other uncle, Herman Montoya was a veteran of WWII as well. Gene was in the Air Force and David was in the Marines. Many more of our friends and neighbors are/were vets as well. How did I not post a memorial of any kind? I did think of them and remember them. We were busy and having fun and we owe this freedom to all our soldiers then and now.

You might check out this YouTube video by Lizzie Palmer, 15 years old, it is very touching. It is about 5 minutes long.

**P.S. Remember to look at the Marine Corps artist, Kris Battles, Sketchpad Warrior, too.
