Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.
Don Stivers, one of the premiere artists in the world on the subject of US military history, and long time friend of the 2nd Cavalry, passed away Thursday, November 5, 2009, while undergoing a heart procedure.
A fan of his, I own three of his scenes. RIP Mr. Stivers.
When we deactivated the Berlin Brigade in 1994, Mr. Don Stivers was commissioned to do a print. I have print 47/800 of "Standoff At Check Point Charlie" which Mr. Stivers graciously autographed on February 22, 1994. It was an honor meeting Mr. Stivers. My all time favorite Don Stivers prints are (along with my "Standoff At Check Point Charlie") are First Sergeant, Proud To Serve, Ready For Ten, Sergeant's Valor, The Commander, Top and Bivouac. Mr. Stivers will be sorely missed by the military because of the way he captured the essence and history of military life. Our prayers go out to his family.
