Medal of Honor Recipient Artwork

Washington State



Susan MeeLing

      Watching the news coverage of many wildfires growing throughout the west coast in the United States of America, I chose to utilize one unforgotten skill after the head injury during my active duty service. Never having graduated to fully become a soldier, I have always had an inner quirk to respect honorable actions.  The duty to this country completed by these wondrous men, are awe-inspiring.  I chose to begin with the state of Washington, because it is the location named after the first President of the United States. I hope to work through the rest of the fifty states to complete as many recipient memorials, as possible.  Below are the pictures, from the completed projects.


       The Medal of Honor Recipient art pieces are available only to two groups, or types of individuals. The first group of individuals who are able to receive their family member's encasing, after providing proof of relations to them. I have sent out emails asking for the caretakers for each of the burial locations, to inform the family of the availability for a piece of their family history. Should the Medal of Honor recipient not have any living family members or the family does not want this, I will donate the works to era specific Veteran Museums and Memorials.


       The honor and valor within these recipients should not be forgotten, for they are a large inspiration for greatness. We need to remember to use prudence and wisdom in conjunction with temperance in moderation, while courage allows justice to prevail.


         If you are interested in my work for a deceased loved one please visit the Commission Artwork contact page, and request the information for the specifics.  Medal of Honor Recipients are individuals I will create art pieces for without charging the families, or the memorial associations.  The MoH recipients are the original inspiration for my artwork and because of their admirable service to the United States of America as I believe, the service males and females already paid the ultimate price for this country.


         May the valor of your ancestors be respected and honored, as they watch.  Brightest blessings, for the highest good of all.


          Unable to complete all prior to fire damage or due to the cemetery being locked the following pieces are in alphabetical order, as could be completed.  The pieces will be encased within two pieces of glass material to hang against the wall and change as sought for the moment, or within a window for sunlight to illuminate through.


        A special thanks to     and  for the information, they made available.



           The following are the completed works as of 26 October 2015 and the encasements within glass began the process with McLendon's Company, in January 2016.

This piece includes the Medal of Honor Recipient Jesse Barrick and includes his wife Sarah Barrick, the earliest female I have seen recognized for her work during wartime on her marker.
