Memorial Day

Soldier's paying tribute to 8 million donkeys, horses and mules that died during WWI

I also wanted to add a sketchbook of a WWII soldier, Victor A. Lundy.
More of his work.

Victor A. Lundy is best known for his modernist architecture —the imposing rectangles of the United States Tax Court Building in Washington, D.C., the angular shapes of the Church of the Resurrection Harlem in New York City, and the mushroom-styled umbrellas around the entrance of the Warm Mineral Springs Motel in Sarasota County, Florida. Born in New York City, Victor Lundy had a keen interest in drawing which he nurtured throughout his childhood. He eventually attended New York University to study architecture before he was sent off to the frontlines of World War 2. After returning from the war, Lundy graduated from Harvard University and went to Sarasota to make a name for himself.


  1. Very moving picture of the soldiers and their tribute to the horses and donkeys......Wow, what a sketchbook. I can see how he made a name for himself. Very interesting story. We must remember them all.

  2. What a terrific post, Linda! Thank you for sharing this.

  3. This is a beautiful tribute to all . It took me a minute to see the Horse but once you said what it was I saw it right away.. The sketches my Dad would have loved to see. But then he saw them for real.. Yes we must never forget what they did for us all. Its a day for remembering not for just picnicking & BBQ Burgers and Hot Dogs..

  4. Thank you for sharing all the wonderful artwork & information with us about WWII soldiers, Linda. It is definitely important to take time to appreciate all those who have served in foreign wars as well as those who have served Our Country here in the U.S. Happy Memorial Day!!!
