Portraits of Courage


I painted the men and women veterans in “Portraits of Courage” to honor their service and show my respect for their sacrifice and courage. I hope to draw attention to the challenges some face when they transition to civilian life – and the need for our country to better address them.

These patriots have been tremendous national assets in the Armed Forces – and continue to be vital to the future success of our country. The greatest honor of the presidency was saluting them as their Commander in Chief. I intend to salute and support them for the rest of my life.

George W. Bush, 43rd President of the United States, The Washington DC 100
