"As an artist people often think our goal is to leave 'our' mark on the world, when actually it is events like Combat Warrior that leaves its mark in my heart.
I was asked to attend my first Combat Warrior event November of 2019. This weekend is designed for our military special ops warriors. It is a time of rest, reflection, hunting and respect. During preparations among the volunteers, I heard of a soldier that had been very weary to attend due to the personal loss while defending our country. My heart went out to him for I had experience loss of a brother as well. I felt that God wanted me to talk to this man but knew nothing of who he was or what looked like. Being asked to come out early Sunday morning to capture the sun rise against the flag at Sam Satterwhite's place, I told God, if you want me to talk to him. Put him in front of me.
It was around 5:00am when I arrived. The entire camp was sleeping with exception of one warrior sitting by the fire. It was him.
We talked, we cried, we laughed and then really laughed when I asked him to let me paint his picture. I don't remember the words but I saw what Combat Warrior is all about. I was able to personally thank him and the other warriors for keeping me and my son safe. I am honored to be a part."
