I have heard a lot of people complaining about our troops being in Iraq recently, and honestly, it is starting to get to me. My older brother and two of my best friends are in the military, and after listening to their stories of deployment and even just basic training and AIT (advanced individual training) I decided to do this poster. The grunge around the M-16 and helmet represents the sacrifice and trials of a soldier, where as the pure white space signifies the ignorance of the typical American (no offense intended to anyone). My girlfriend wrote the little speech thing, and I giver her full credit for it. The design is my own. Took about an hour of design.
