Greater Love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
The purpose of this site is to showcase ONE of one man's contributions to honor All Vietnam Veterans, as well as the veterans of every war throughout time.
Sgt. Everett L. Carter Sr. has created a work of art measuring 3 feet by 24 feet; an oil painting on six connected canvases, (below).
What sets this work of art apart is the method used to complete it, over an almost seven month span. This piece is created in a mosaic fashion, exploiting the wooden shaft of a broken paintbrush for the purpose of placing 'DOTS' on the canvas, ONE DOT for every American Soldier Lost in the war in Vietnam.
There may be some dispute on the exact number of those Lives Laid Down, but there is no dispute that they should be recognized.
IN ALL, THERE ARE 58, 479 DOTS.
