A WW II Artist at War
Before there were combat photographers, there were artists. This link goes to
the story of one of them, Mimi Korach Lesser, who spent two years in Europe, from just before the end of the war until after.
Her job was to draw pictures of soldiers, many in hospitals, to send back to their families.
The website has about 700 of her portraits, all of them uncommonly good, and a look into the faces of
the soldiers of WW II.
The President's 2006 Proclamation
As we recall the service of our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen, we are reminded that the defense of freedom comes with great loss and sacrifice. This Veterans Day, we give thanks to those who have served freedom's cause; we salute the members of our Armed Forces who are confronting our adversaries abroad; and we honor the men and women who left America's shores but did not live to be thanked as veterans. They will always be remembered by our country
