LT.Ronald Dodge, Vietnam POW by 


Tribute to Lieutenant Ronald Dodge

POW— Captured May 17, 1967

Remains returned July 8, 1981

The story behind this painting is interesting. I was in Wyoming, shopping in a thrift store, when I came across a Life Magazine. On the cover was Ronald Dodge—the photo was taken -right when he was being captured- and the expression on his face is beyond captivating. I had to paint a picture of him and honor this last image of him. So, I bought the magazine, went home and painted a series on war/peace.
I was hoping that this during my art project, I could somehow bring peace to the memory of him.
