Yesterday, Facebook remembered those who did the most heroic action for their country.
A beautiful hand drawn mural by Army Veteran Richard Lee showcased the drawbacks of the Vietnam war. It currently lives in the Facebook headquarters, in San Francisco.
The original mural idea was created by Lee Teter, however, Richard recreated it in honor of Memorial Day.

"Our shoulder flag patch is reversed, because it's always moving forward with the stars." said my Drill SGT in Fort Jackson, South Carolina. During this bootcamp, my mentality had to be broken in order to be reforged with such idea, and looking back upon it I'm proud to be part of the team. Every once in a while, we look back to our veterans. I always wanted to do something for Veterans or Memorial day, and I always wanted to redraw this original painting done by Lee Teter. It looks different in person, do visit for memorial weekend! Took 22 hours over 5 days. MPK 20 Z4. - Richard Lee, Former US Army Reservist
