Jd's SPECIAL FRIENDS

Greg Hamilton

Greg Hamilton and Jd Challenger

VIETNAM WAR MEMORIAL

Greg was a Native American, a veteran of Vietnam, and a member of the wall washing crew at the WADC Vietnam Memorial. A friend Jd is honored to know.

Greg's group takes care of the Vietnam Memorial in WADC. Additionally, he has a program on TV about Vets. They are using Jd's paintings Ashes to Dust and Apache Wind as backdrops. These images in poster form are being sold and the profits go to the Memorial. The original Ashes to Dust painting was donated by Jd.

Jd: "Here I am standing next to my hero."
