NBC News reports:
The president commented along with the photo that, “Over the past several months, I’ve painted the portraits of 98 wounded warriors I’ve gotten to know – remarkable men and women who were injured carrying out my orders.”
One of the oft commented on aspects of President Bush’s personality has always been his concern and worry over the men and women who were put in harm’s way because of choices and orders he gave. This project is a lovely and fitting tribute from a Commander-in-Chief to his men and women who served under him.
The portraits will be a part of a book and exhibit called Portraits of Courage coming in 2017, with proceeds going to The Bush Center and the Bush’s Military Service Initiative.
Answers to questions about the application can be answered by going to the Induction Criteria and Application page and watching the video.

So today was a great start for the program!!
The kids loved experimenting with their new “sketchbooks” and promised to work on them during the week.
The director, Max, was very happy to have us in the classroom once again. He was extremely happy with all the donations we received, not only for the artist Express program, but also for the classroom. The volunteers really enjoyed interacting with the kids and assisting them in making their newly made “sketchbooks.”
Additional volunteers are always welcome to come assist on Wednesday afternoons from 4:15-5:15pm.
Please join us at the next Art Honor Society meeting to hear about upcoming events and opportunities.
If you have completed the draft of the art related activities beyond the classroom page, please submit it at the meeting.
