War and Consequence

I have chosen to use these pieces of art to depict war and the some of the consequences that result. You can see injury and death in most of these pieces of art, but also you can see that I have also arranged theses art works in sort of an evolution of war as well. Being prior military, I still love everything about it and having deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq three times each, I do not regret a thing and love giving people who have never served a look at what war actually looks like instead of what they see consistently on the news.
