W e the people — these words embody the ethos of what it means to be an American citizen. As individuals we are a tapestry of colors and creeds; united we are a nation committed to preserving our hard-earned freedom. In this heart-stirring collection of watercolor portraits of military veterans — one from each of the fifty states — artist Mary Whyte captures this ethos as well as the dedication, responsibility, and courage it takes to fulfill that promise. . . .

Mary Whyte is an artist and author whose watercolor paintings have earned international recognition. She is the recipient of the Portrait Society of America’s Gold Medal and the Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Award, South Carolina’s highest honor in the arts.
