Here are the next two entries for the SA card contest. As always, you can click on the pic to enlarge. Last year I was reading Chris's blog and found this photo. He gave me permission to use it. I just loved the care and gentleness of the soldier with the little Iraqi girl. I left out all of the medical equipment in and around the soldier and girl and focused on just them.
This painting was taken from a photo on Kaboom's blog. I believe it is Sgt Bulldog - for those of you who used to read his blog. Once again, the idea of these tough soldiers caring for Iraqi children is amazing and very paintable. Kaboom (wiki link) had to be the best milblog writer of all time, but he removed his total blog under orders, and he seems to have disappeared. Someday, I would like to see his blog published as a book, because it was great stuff.
