SOFREP is running a weekly feature for the Art of War in partnership with Uniting US, a non-profit charity that empowers veterans through the healing powers of the arts. Uniting US has graciously provided us with some very high-quality images of the work of their artists to share with you. Artists working with Uniting US have exhibited their work at places like the Pentagon, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and Dulles International Airport. Some of the art is for sale if you are inclined to support the worthy mission of this charity.

About the Artist: Mark began pencil drawings of Civil War battlefields when he was three years old. Since a young age, he has enjoyed creating art as a means to have a conversation with another presence, showing respect and honor each time by giving his best effort, insight, and empathy.  

Mark enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1972. He served as a personalist on a Destroyer Tender, USS Sierra (AD-18) in Norfolk, VA and Charleston, SC, and as an active duty stationkeeper at the Naval Reserve Center, South Charleston, WV. After his service in the military, Mark earned his MFA from West Virginia University and worked as a higher education professor for over 20 years while exhibiting art. His artworks are in numerous private collections in the United States and Germany. 

Uniting US is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that works to inspire, empower, and unite veterans, their family members, and the communities in which they live through the healing power of the arts.
