I sleep better at night knowing that the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans is working to assist our homeless heroes. I am also proud that A Stroke of Patriotism is able to provide some support.

My Name is Annie

2017 "Patriotic Expressions" Stroke of Patriotism Art Contest

Medium - Oil


Annie is one of thousands of Annies who are part of military and veteran families.  She is five years old and her daddy is on his third deployment. She sits on the beach wondering when he will come home. Then there is Annie, her mommy was injured in Iraq and can't do the things she could do before she was deployed. Annie has to help with some of the chores but she doesn't mind. She feels that she is one of the lucky ones, her mommy doesn't have to go away again. Then there is Annie who doesn't know why her daddy gets angry or sits in a dark corner. He always sits facing the door and jumps if there is a loud noise. She can't see his wounds. We thank our active military and veterans for their service. Our hearts break for the caregivers who didn't expect this to be their new job. We don't always thank Annie who is just too young to understand.
