On August 15, from 11am to 4pm, the American Legion Post 21, 16701 E 4o Hwy, Indep. Mo. 64050 and the Veterans Administration Hospital staff will be honoring those veterans of the OIF/OEF at a social. Also, they will be honoring the fallen soldiers from that conflict and the Gold Star families. Several of the portraits done by the artists group, Grateful Hearts Project(of which I am the founder) will be on display during the event.
To view the completed portraits that were done free of charge for the families you can go to my website at www.jennylynnegragg.com. Click on Works, then on Grateful Hearts Portraits.
It has been an honor and privilege to provide portraits of these heroes to their families. If you know of a family that would like a portrait of their fallen soldier from either Iraq or Afghanistan war/conflict just email me thru my website or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
