Put a Face to the Name

Each time I visit my son or a friend interned at the Northern California Veterans Cemetery, I always wonder what face lies behind each name.

As a result I am beginning a new project to honor 20 of these heroes by painting a portrait of them and donating it to the family. Each portrait will be displayed at an art show at the Shasta County Arts Council in Old City Hall.

The date of this show will hopefully be around Memorial Day 2018 but will be determined at a later date. I will write a short biography of each veteran’s military history to be displayed with the portrait.

Anybody interested in submitting their family member for this honor should contact me via email at: prudhommeart@sbcglobal.net.

As a Vietnam Veteran and retired military officer I am honored to pursue this project of Putting a Face to the Name of these local heroes!
