Lerch as Desk Sergeant, 9x12", grease pencil on paper
I was in the Air Force. It was a short career, but also an experience that I wouldn't trade. The people I met and worked and became friends with are fantastic/wonderful/great/awesome. They continue to do great things, and I am proud of them.
A few days ago, I saw that the Constitution Center in Philadelphia was putting together a show of sorts, titled "Art of the American Soldier". And they wanted submissions. I rifled through my sketchbook and found Lerch. I felt like I had won the lottery, and submitted the humble sketch.
Considering that I worked 12 hour shifts with my teammates, you would think that I would have more drawings of them. I'm kicking myself now because I didn't draw Red, or Collins, or Odgers, or Campbell, or Calabrese, or Weatherwax, or Horan, or Martinez-Caban.... the list goes on. So, this little sketch actually means a lot to me.
You can see it (in the 1990's) and more like it at the link (it is a flash website, and takes a bit of time to load):
