Fallen Heroes

Artist Michael G. Reagan displays some of his sketches of Fallen Heroes.

Letters from families of the Fallen Heroes Project tell the story of the impact of Reagan’s portraits:
Mr. Reagan,

We just returned last night from a trip to Colorado and the young lady that was taking care of our house put your package on the kitchen counter.  I knew the minute I saw the package that it was the picture of Michael.  WOW!  I cannot describe the feelings that my husband and I had when we opened the package.  It was Michael looking at us with those sparkling eyes and warm smile.  You are truly a gifted artist and can capture that special look that everyone has.  Our family will always treasure this work of art and I hope that you know that you gave us back our Michael.  I will have it matted and framed to protect it and put it in a place of honor.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Dear Michael,

We just received the portrait of my son A.J. and I am just amazed. I feel as though I am truly gazing into my son’s eyes. You have captured my son’s likeness right down to the smallest detail. You are a very gifted man, as you already know. Yes, Our Father has given you a special talent and we are all lucky you found it. From one veteran to another, I thank you. May God always shine his light upon you and your family.

Michael,

We received your portrait of our son Andrew today in the mail.  My first response was having to take a deep breath and saying “Oh, My God.”  The portrait is wonderful.  You especially ‘caught’ the soul in my son’s eyes and his mischievous grin. We will immediately get this professionally mounted.

Thank you.  I can’t say that enough. You’re doing a wonderful thing here for us “Gold Star Families.”

Sincerely, Mark Ehrlich
