Very nice. I wish I could find some pics of my dad when he was young. I have a couple when he was in the army but they are not very good.

Very nice, I like the shading. Is the shading pyrography or colored pencils?

To both, that is a great tribute to some true hero's.

Wisdom: Where experience and knowledge combine and become one.

"We are all one decision away from Stupid!!"

Lamentations 3:22-23

"How often we sacrifice the permanent plans of God on the altar of immediate solutions"

I have a very good memory, just short is all.
