AUSA Family Programs has a number of prints of “The Noble Calling,” an original artwork commissioned by the Army Family Liaison Office, to give away. The painting honors the sacrifices made by military families everyday as they support their loved ones serving in the United States Armed Forces. The print depicts two Army families against the backdrop of Army history, including depictions of the “Buffalo Soldiers” and the Revolutionary War.
The artist, Richard E. Thompson, has been a designer and technical illustrator with Lockheed Martin for more than nineteen years. Although Thompson normally illustrates the triumphs of military technology, he felt a special calling to celebrate the unsung heroes of the military forces, the Army Family. Adding to the poignancy of this piece is the date when it was completed and signed-September 11th 2001- a day that showed once again the reality of the sacrifices made by service members and their families.
