The Quintessential Soldier
He is the absolute embodiment of military perfection
coupled with an eye toward compassion
He is motivated to put a quick end to hostilities by
whatever means necessary
Our soldier is depicted as the protector of the injured
or downtrodden while totally aware of the surrounding
evil which threatens life, limb and property
Our soldier is shown as being courageous under fire,
multitasking as he aids a wounded comrade
He is not averse to using deadly force while employing
exact professional judgment in all he does
He is a savior
He is a warrior
He is a thinking human being
He is in excellent physical condition
His face shows his disgust for war
His body shows the warriors stance as he aids his injured buddy
This is the task we set before our sculptor Brian Hanlon
We believe he has captured our vision and brought
it to us with this unique design
The Quintessential Soldier is your brother, son, father,
mother or sister;
The Quintessential Soldier is you
