WARNING:This site sometimes contains emotionally charged and graphic accounts of experiences concerning Combat. Some posts may act as trigger's for someone suffering from a trauma-based disorder (PTSD) and others may equally be affected as well ,such as our Gold Star Families! Since we do deal with true accounts from our troops of their service.
Welcome to the Fallen Heroes Portrait page. One of the other things that we do to honor
the families and friends of our Fallen Heroes is to do 11x17 pencil portraits at no cost to the
families of a Fallen Hero.
If you are a family member or a friend or just someone that would like to honor the
family of a Fallen Hero and would like to have an 11x17 pencil portrait of your
Fallen Hero then contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org We will have
our artist Clayton D. Murwin personally draw a portrait of your Fallen Hero .
It can take up to two weeks to complete the penciled portrait . They are done in the order
they are received to the best of my abilities, Also please be aware I have several request so
the wait time can be several months since I am the only person who does the portraits.. You
will receive status updates on the progress of your portrait if you supply us with an email
address. Also we will need a large photograph to work from or a digital scan of the
photograph saved at no less than 200 DPI (Dots Per Inch) resolution..
THANK YOU ! For Visiting our site.
