American Artist Paints 2000 portraits of the fallen

Just saw this very moving story on the BBC news website, MODS feel free to shift it to a different forum if required and apologies if covered elsewhere. The portrait that he did of the young soldier with his baby (that he had never seen) was particularly moving.

Well done Mr Reagan


Distinctive portraits of British, US and Canadian service personnel killed in Iraq and Afghanistan - created by artist Michael Reagan - have gone on display at Arlington National Cemetery near Washington DC.

A Vietnam War veteran himself, he has produced more than 2,000 drawings for the soldiers' families free of charge. He told BBC Radio 4's PM programme he wants to document all of the Allied troops killed in action.
Extremely moving. Especially so that he would honour our fallen also.

Thanks for posting this.
