In the artist’s own words: “This is a photo of a grave of a fallen Buckeye soldier. At the American Cemetery at Normandy, there are a handful of soldiers that fought and lost their lives that had spent time at OSU. On my World War II study abroad program, we visited every grave of a Buckeye, read a brief history of their life, and then laid a flower before their grave. It was one of the most moving moments from that trip, and one I will never forget.”
