I was told about this website from a friend of Brett's.
I just wanted to say thank you to the Marines who are
in Iraq fighting for our freedom. I'm from Brett's hometown
of Sabina, Ohio. I started painting his mural the day
following his funeral. from the hundreds of people that
have stopped to see his
mural, there is one that stands out among
the rest. A car stopped by the roadside to view the
mural. A man in his late 70's early 80's got out of
his car and stood beside the car...he didn't approach
the mural like I would see most people do.....he stood
there for a moment and then saluted Brett's mural....upon
seeing the man salute , I got very choked up...as he
drove away in the back of his car window was a United
States Marine sticker.....to this day I have never seen
anything so amazing in my life.... Duane A. Richard
