George W. Bush honors wounded warriors by painting their portraits

Former President George W. Bush is honoring wounded warriors by painting their portraits.

“Over the past several months, I’ve painted the portraits of 98 wounded warriors I’ve gotten to know — remarkable men and women who were injured carrying out my orders,” he wrote on Facebook on Veterans Day. "I think about them on #VeteransDay and every day.”

The paintings and stories of the soldiers will be featured in “Portraits of Courage,” a book and special exhibit, next spring.

Bush wrote that he is donating all the proceeds to The Bush Center and their Military Service Initiative.
