I was inspired to do this piece while sitting amongst thousands watching the Veterans Parade. The innocense of the students marching by proudly representing their school. sharply contrasted by the different emotions on the faces of the veterans themselves. Some Nam vets appeared surprised at the amount of people braving the cold weather to show them respect. Something they were cheated from when they came home. The older vets looked comfortable,as if they were accustom to this level of respect. And finally some of the younger vets had a sense of uncertainty about them as if they sense they might have to return someday.
