    A True Hero

    I met this guy in the elevator of the hospital. We talked. I thanked him for his sacrifice. This was his response...

    (I should've done a better illustration, but I was so anxious to share this! BTW- he had a shirt on, I just thought this would be more interesting!)

    Thanks for sharing this Skylar...hats off to all the men and women who serve (and have served) in god forsaken places around the world to defend freedom
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    What a very very moving piece Skylar. Wonderful tribute to those that have sacrificed so much. The all too often forgotten heroes.

    Nicely done Skylar, a fitting tribute to so many injured in war.
