Portraits of Courage Exhibit is Meaningful

Portraits of Courage may have left the museum but the exhibit has left an impression on those who visited it. 
Docent Judy Kittoe reflects on her time there. "The highlight for me was on Military Day when a man thought he recognized one of the paintings which was of Chris Demars. Together we listened on my cell phone to President Bush telling the story of that soldier's injuries and the help he is getting to overcome his PTS and traumatic brain injury. 
Indeed the two men served together in Afghanistan and both have and are helping other veterans who are suffering from PTS. It was an inspirational conversation and one I will never forget."
