An unveiling ceremony of a painting depicting an Army Medic caring for a wounded Soldier on the battlefield was held Feb. 15, 2017, at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, Germany.
The mosaic painting, consisting of 250 individual 4x4-inch cloth tiles, was created by children of parents from the 212th Combat Support Hospital, many who work at LRMC.
"You can see how strongly these children value their parents' profession of saving Soldiers' lives," said 21st CSH Commander Col. Brian Almquist during the ceremony.
That connection was also noted by Chaplain (Capt.) David Redden, a 212th chaplain whose daughter Hope Redden was one of more the more than 70 parents, children and volunteers who participated in the project. "As they were painting this, they were talking about their parents."
The project was conducted as part of the "Worship through Art" program. After being displayed at LRMC, it will be on permanent display at the 212th CSH.
