Awarded for Combat Art

 Last Saturday night, I was honored to be invited to the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation's 2010 Awards Dinner, where I  was selected to receive the Colonel John W. Thomason, Jr. Award for combat art, specifically for my work from deployments to Afghanistan and Haiti.

It's a huge honor, and something that I will be proud of years from now when I look back at my time as a combat artist. To be honored for doing the best you can at what you are called to do, and what you love to do, is truly rewarding.
