“OUR FALLEN” pencil drawing printed on premium 11” x 14” archival paper.
The pencil drawing depicts the iconic Fallen Soldier Memorial (helmet, boots, rifle, and dog tag) in fine detail from the laces on the boots to the chain on the dog tag to the buckles on the helmet.
Along the bottom of the print, Operation’s *OEF and *OIF are listed along with the yearly number of service members lost during that period. The timeline along the bottom **attempts to capture all our fallen from the first 12 service members lost in 2001 to the last thirteen in 2021. Needless to say, this drawing is dedicated to all our fallen.
