“I painted these men and women as a way to honor their service to the country and to show my respect for their sacrifice and courage,” Bush writes in the book’s introduction. “I hope to draw attention to the challenges some face when they come home and transition to civilian life—and the need for our country to better address them.”

President Bush will donate proceeds from the book to the non-profit organization that coordinates the Military Service Initiative. The proceeds will help veterans and their families as they transition into civilian life.
