Wounded Warriors

Our homeschooling group got together to do some art for Wounded Warriors.
Marine museum seeks young artists

The National Museum of the Marine Corps is looking for young artists to decorate the walls of the Wounded Warrior wing of the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.

"Art for wounded warriors is one more way that the museum extends its support outside our four walls to Marines everywhere," said Lin Ezell, museum director.

"I hope there is so much art submitted for this program that we can offer it to other hospitals where veterans are recovering."

Children should draw a picture, and write a supportive message, on an 8-by-11 sheet of paper. It should have their name, hometown and grade level on the back.

The museum will accept drawings, paintings or colorings; all art must be submitted in a flat, rigid envelope, postmarked by Nov. 30.

Submissions should be mailed to: National Museum of the Marine Corps, Attn: Teacher in Residence, 18900 Jefferson Davis Highway, Triangle, Va., 22172-1938.
