The Survivors


I thought I would send you this painting
I recently finished of
four WWll veterans in our town.
Between them they were at Manilla, Pearl Harbor,
Iwo Jima, Battle of the Bulge and Normandy.
The painting is called The Survivors.
It is about the men who saw the worst of it
and came home able to love their familes
and function as decent and caring neighbors.
