George W. Bush’s book, Portraits of Courage.

———————————-

Love him or hate him, one would be hard-pressed to find a reason to criticize President George W. Bush’s life since leaving the White House. He and his wife, Laura, have settled into quiet retirement and it has long been known that the former president has become an avid and skilled painter.

On Veteran’s Day, the president shared a very touching new project he’s been working on recently:

The president commented along with the photo that, “Over the past several months, I’ve painted the portraits of 98 wounded warriors I’ve gotten to know – remarkable men and women who were injured carrying out my orders.”

One of the oft commented on aspects of President Bush’s personality has always been his concern and worry over the men and women who were put in harm’s way because of choices and orders he gave. This project is a lovely and fitting tribute from a Commander-in-Chief to his men and women who served under him.

The portraits will be a part of a book and exhibit called Portraits of Courage coming in 2017, with proceeds going to The Bush Center and the Bush’s Military Service Initiative.
