Event at George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum





Tagged in: Kids, Weekend, Libraries


Portraits of Courage – A Commander in Chief's Tribute to America's Warriors grew out of President Bush’s own outreach and the ongoing work of the George W. Bush Institute's Military Service Initiative.

Portraits of Courage brings together 66 full-color portraits and a four-panel mural painted by President Bush of members of the United States military who have served our nation with honor since 9/11 — and whom he has come to know personally.

Each painting is accompanied by the inspiring story of the veteran depicted, written by the President.
