What an insightful and interesting article. Andrea Davide is certainly someone dedicated to her field. Kudos to her friend Mark Glatman for giving her the inspiration to follow her dream.

At a time when this country needs heros and we have at least 150,000 of them preserving our future in the mideast-Andrea Davide is showing artistically and historically that we will not forget the valor of those who have and will serve.

The comming together of history and art with real life drama that makes the effort and the outcome so interesting.

I think that it is incredible that this talented artist would travel to the Philippines for her art at her own expense. I am surprised that the Air Force Art Program did not reimburse her. Our country needs more dedicated visionaries such as Andrea Davide !

This project is Amazing, and Andrea's artwork is marvelous. It is great to see how much artwork can help to solve things that happened back in the day, and to keep history alive. Kudos to Andrea, and the whole Davide family for backing her, and her ventures to the Middle East. -The Annoying One

Andrea didn't give the AF the opportunity to put together a mission to assist and make this a authenicated dig. Her visit was not authorised and thus not "reimbursable". The AF Art Program did assist her with framing costs and other items authorised as part of the program. As briefed, Ms Davide understood that she would assume such costs.

This is absolutely correct! It is a wonderful testament that the Davides' have chosen to invest so much of themselves and their family to remembering our past heroes. The unselfishness of their act needs to be recognized and honored.

Are you suggesting the AF would have supported Davide's mission or put together one of their own given more time?

Life is short Sal! The AF does make things happen!
If an inventor or an artist has the inspiration and motivation to unfold something new or recreate something that time can never erase in in importance then onward! If a young hero long gone has not fully been brought to the attention of the public then when? Several people have written books and others have written works on Major McGuire- do you think the AF needed to put together a mission to do this? Davide showed what our country is made up of-Americans who will role up their sleeves, get in the mud, risk their own being to follow an inspiration,inspire others as to what role models should be and to make it happen! I do not think believe that she wanted the AF to do for her but what she could do for them! Anyone reading this in retrospect would have had an adrelin rush just thinking about particpating in such a circle of events! When you keep one young hero alive you keep all the others
