Mr. Bush, the former Commander In Chief, comes through with a relevant and thought-provoking series of original paintings and poignant stories. The author is honoring the valiancy, resiliency, and strength of the brave men and women of the United States Army. Overall, there are 66 portraits and a 4-panel masterpiece painted by the man himself.
The sacrifices of the honorable soldiers who served America after 9/11 are now forever "engraved" in history. Bush knew these folks personally, and now he's giving back to them in the most brilliant way. Our heroic folks gave their lives just to see democracy prevail and deserve the utmost respect. Sometimes, they return to the States hurt and injured, and we can't always see their pain, but it's there, somewhere deep inside.
It's not an easy task to get back to that civilian life after going through something as horrible and terrifying as war. Furthermore, the folks at home and the war vets don't always see eye to eye, and that worsens the situation even more. 71% of Americans claim they have very little idea about the problems and challenges that the veterans go through, and the soldiers agree: 81% of them report that the regular folks know nothing about what the veterans and their families have to endure.
As for Portraits of Courage, ever single painting comes with a breath-taking story of a certain veteran. The President himself put those strokes, showing his support and understanding. So, if you ever wanted to see the faces of the heroes, the brave folks that answered that call of duty, make sure to grab a copy of this book.
