POOL OF TEARS ALL VETERAN MEMORIAL
Pool of Tears was installed in 2003 and was one of my proudest moments. Working with a limited budget, the sculture was created with a medium called Winterstone, which means both the little boy and the soldier were one of a kind pieces. No molds were made so no additional pieces could be cast.
My eldest grandson, who was nine at the time, was my model for the little boy. The soldier is a composite of several men I served with. As a Vietnam combat veteran, spending ten and twleve hours a day sculpting this memorial had it's challenges, but it also had healing moments.
If you're ever in the Temple area, swing downtown and visit the memorial site. I hope it means as much to those who visit as creating it did to me.
SALUTE TO A HERO
Fort Myers Beach Public Library, Fort Myers Beach, Florida
Schertz Veterans Park
Over the years, we've had multiple requests to request the little boy from the Pool of Tears installation. There was no mold preserved for that piece, so in 2012, I created SALUTE TO A HERO, for public installations at the public library in Fort Myers Beach, Florida and the Veterans Memorial Plaza in Schertz, Texas.
DUTY, HONOR AND COUNTRY
Msg. Roy Benivadez, Congressional Medal of Honor Recepient
Memorial Park, Cuero, Texas
Roy Benavidez spent a lifetime serving his country, though he never considered himself a hero, even after President Reagan placed the Congressional Medal of Honor around his neck. He was, as anyone who has ever read his story would know, an extraordinary and couragous man, a true patriot. Being commissioned for this project recognizing one of America's finest was an honor beyond measure.
