This is heart warming
& praise worthy.
IF you haven't seen this, it is a must.
Pray for our TROOPS, we just lost a young Marine locally.
Listen to this awesome song at this link, so fitting!
This statue currently stands outside the
Iraqi palace, now home to the 4th Infantry
division. It will eventually be shipped home
and put in the memorial museum in Fort Hood ,
The statue was created by an Iraqi artist named
Kalat, who for years was forced by
Saddam Hussein to make the many hundreds
of bronze busts of Saddam that dotted Baghdad .
Kalat was so grateful for the Americans liberation
of his country; he melted 3 of the heads of the
fallen Saddam and made the statue as a memorial
to the American soldiers and their fallen warriors.
Kalat worked on this memorial night and day for
several months. To the left of the kneeling soldier
is a small Iraqi girl giving the soldier comfort as he
mourns the loss of his comrade in arms.
