Well, I wanted to honor those who died and I was thinking of something that I could do, so I decided to blog about it. Here are 20 stunning illustrations of US Soldiers. Hopefully, while viewing these illustrations, we can remind ourselves of the great and ultimate sacrifice that these soldiers have given us. Let us also spend a moment to think about all those families who have just lost a loved one.
The last two designs are my favorite. The final illustration was actually created by a United States soldier who served the country in Iraq.
