So how do these wounded warriors feel about having artists capture their ravaged bodies? Contrary to general assumption, Retired Marine & Military Artist Michael D.Fay insisted the soldiers are not self-conscious about being sketched. He told the story of Specialist Derek McConnell, who lost both of his legs in combat. McConnell asked artist Victor Juhasz, "Do you want to see everything?" and proceeded to take off his
shirt to reveal severe stretch marks, a bag,
and wounds that had gone septic. "These
guys understand why we are there, and they are really willing to open up to us," noted Fay... "they want their sacrifice to count."
