George, These illustrations and paintings are truly amazing, and capture both the tragedy of war, and the day-to-day of military life, so well that I feel carried back in time. Your talent leaves me in awe. This is one of my favorites. So glad these could be shared, and saved here for posterity. Wishing you a very happy birthday. All my love, Sarah.
