The Working Warriors Group logo. It combines the symbol for karma and the black & white digital pattern inside encompasses all military branches. Stands for "Doing the right things for the right reasons". The Working Warrior Group gives back to everyone involved!
Working Warriors Group is a non profit organization that partners with our military Veterans by providing them specialized training, certification and licensing needed to secure current or future employment opportunities through donations and grants.
Too many Veterans are falling through the cracks and feel they have been left behind. We have built a platform that creates an additional safety net for those transitioning Veterans in need of employment. Working Warriors Group provides national outreach for willing participants and provides them the required training, certifications and continued support. We will work to partner with any interested companies.
This isn't job placement in cubicles, this is helping heroes realize their potential.
"When you look at this piece, you can see the weight of the world on old Abe’s shoulders. The cost of putting a world together – and the loss of life, including his own – is too much for any one person to bear."
"And that’s what this piece represents. It’s him realizing the fact that that has occurred in his life. In order to put a more perfect world together – which is freedom and the end of slavery – he’s given everything he has".
"He’s standing in this field, with his head down, holding the 13th Amendment in his hand. An old rail splitter from Kentucky and Illinois. That’s what he was. And in a way, he did save the world".
"So did the son of a carpenter save the world? They’re two of a kind. There’s a lot of similarity between the Crucifixion and Lincoln. You look at this and you look at Christ on the Cross, and it’s the same feeling".
"They can’t understand why people crucify each other, like they did in the Civil War. But Lincoln made a country where they had no slavery, and where the word ‘freedom’ meant something".
"I am real proud to do this piece. It has all the style and technique I’m noted for, and the feel of Giacometti with the elongation I put in. I think it’s a beautiful piece".
