Versatile Bronze Bars and Copper Sheets: From Crafts to Industries
As harrowing as the Iraq war was, it left behind images of bravery and solidarity among America’s finest, including one captured by embedded photographer Lucian Read. This picture shows Marine 1st Sargent Brad Kasal battered yet remaining steadfast amid the battle in Fallouja, being assisted by fellow soldiers Lance Corporals Chris Marquez and Dane Schaffer to safety. As reported by Tony Perry of the LA Times, the now iconic image has recently been immortalized into a bronze sculpture titled “No Man Left Behind” by Wyoming sculptor John Phelps, and unveiled outside the Wounded Warrior West site in Camp Pendleton.
