Art of War

Casualties of War, Plastic moulded figurines by Dorothy:
“The hell of war comes home. In July 2009 Colorado Springs Gazettea published a two-part series entitled “Casualties of War”. The articles focused on a single battalion based at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, who since returning from duty in Iraq had been involved in brawls, beatings, rapes, drunk driving, drug deals, domestic violence, shootings, stabbings, kidnapping and suicides. Returning soldiers were committing murder at a rate 20 times greater than other young American males. A seperate investiagtion into the high suicide rate among veterans published in the New York Times in October 2010 revealed that three times as many California veterans and active service members were dying soon after returning home than those being killed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. We hear little about the personal hell soldiers live through after returning home.”


  1. Too late to be terribly verbal here. Would "WOW" suffice? Wish we had those around for the boys who left for Vietnam!

    Need one for PTSD...

  2. These need to be replacements for the original toy soldiers designed for little boys to play little war games and to identify with "soldier." Like the girls had their blonde buxom Barbies. What conditioning!
