Tell us about your design “Camo Cow”…
As a Navy Vet concerned that our military war victims are not getting the recognition for their sacrifices of life and limb, I wanted to continue the cause.
Camouflage, the emblem of military service, coupled with a star banner, and the poignant words of a warrior’s purpose in battle, make up the collage for “Camo Cow”. A necklace of dog-tags representing those of the County of San Luis Obispo who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
