Pennsylvania Based 28th Infantry Division Commissions New Print

Cory Angell - PA VFW News - 3/11/2021

 


The 28 Infantry Division Mess commissioned Mr. Larry Selman to create a print that commemorates the 20th Anniversary of September 11, 2001. The print depicts 28ID contributions to the Global War on Terrorism.
 
Selman previously painted "Gun 23" a tribute to Chief Warrant Officer 3 Matthew Ruffner, Tafford, PA, and Chief Warrant Officer 2 Jarett Yoder, Mohnton, PA. The two were killed when their Apache Attack Helicopter crashed in Nangarhar Province Afghanistan, April 9, 2013.

The actual print will be in color but Selman recently completed the concept sketch.

Selman worked with public affairs and gathered imagery from over the past 20 years to help develop the concept.
 
According to the division mess page, the soldiers represent the diversity of the division, their uniforms symbolize the transformation of the National Guard from a strategic reserve to an operational force.
 
The scenes represent the different theaters of operations and mission sets (European Peacekeeping, Domestic Operations within the Commonwealth and Combat Operations in the Middle East and Afghanistan) as well as the Flight 93 National Memorial in Somerset County, Pennsylvania to commemorate the events of September 11, 2001.
