Just in time for the July 4th parade! This is an elderly Vietnam Veteran, holding his flag at the parade. He is also a member of the American Legion. The carving is just under 7 inches tall, not counting the flag, and carved from basswood.

Wonderfully rendered, Claude. You captured the old vet perfectly.

You simply amaze me with your ability not only to carve beautifully but also create character in the piece!
