THE STATUE

This statue currently stands outside the Iraqi palace, Now home to the 4th Infantry division It will eventually be shipped home And put in the memorial museum in Fort Hood , Texas

The statue was created by an Iraqi artist named Kalat, who for years was forced by Saddam Hussein to make the many hundreds of bronze busts of Saddam that dotted Baghdad

Kalat was so grateful for the Americans liberation of his country;He melted 3 of the heads of the fallen Saddam and made the statue as a memorial to the American soldiers and their fallen warriors

Kalat worked on this memorial night and day for several months.

To the left of the kneeling soldier is a small Iraqi girl giving the soldier comfort as he mourns the loss of his comrade in arms.

Do you know why we don't hear about this in the news?

Because it is heart warming andpraise worthy..

The media avoids it because it does not have the shock effect.
But we can do something about it.

We can pass this along to as many people as we can in honor of all our brave military who are making a difference.

And
please
pass this on!
