I was approached by a group of WWII veterans who wanted to erect a small bronze plaque on the campus of their college. They wanted to recognize all of the WWII vets that attended the school after the war ended.
I suggested that I thought I had a better idea. I described this sculpture. The title, “Tears From a Grateful Heart”’ presents the story of a modern day soldier, kneeling in honor of those who have fought before him. A small tear can be seen from his eyes. I told the older veterans, “He is kneeling in honor of you. There are battles you fought that he will not have to fight and he is grateful.”
