Vietnam Veteran: Tears in the Rain

11 August 2005: Danny Garrett is a Vietnam combat veteran. He was drafted in June, 1968 and released from service in March of 1970. He seved in the Americal Division in Quang Ngai province, southern I Corps.

Called “Tears in the Rain”, this drawing is a composite portrait of a Vietnam veteran after a photograph by David Douglas Duncan, and attempts to depict a “generic” image of the soldier that served there, regardless of race or ethnicity.

Given that America is once again at war, Danny thought it proper to bring this portrait out of his portfolio, and show it again.
