As we travel the country we witness firsthand the struggles of our returning combat veterans coping with post traumatic stress and the loss of their brothers and sisters in combat and at home. Survivor guilt, grief and trauma often runs deeper than words. Art reaches the recesses of the heart and creates the connections that can break the cycle of pain.

Inspired by combat veteran, Brian Zimmerman from Minnesota, Eyes of Freedom artist, Anita Miller is currently working on a life sized bronze sculpture, entitled “Silent Battle” to travel with the Memorial. After having experienced the Eyes of Freedom, Brian shared a vision with the artist to inspire hope for him and other suffering veterans, “Showing a grieving warrior holding the dog tags of his fallen brothers and sisters would communicate that we are not alone in our pain.”

Please help us, your donation not only sponsors the casting of the bronze but also goes to scholarships for children of military suicide victims and PTS research.
