Gen. James 'Mad Dog' Mattis bust


  • Details
    My son-in-law served under Mattis in Iraq and suggested that a lot of Marines would like a bust of him. Since I was doing a commissioned piece of Stonewall Jackson, I thought it a good idea to include someone well-loved and contemporary--and reading up on "Mad Dog" decided that he represents the perfect criteria of a great general....and that I needed a 'Generals' Category to include General Dumas and Xenophon. Others will follow, and I'm grateful to the general, who just turned in his resignation as Secretary of Defense (much as Dumas walked out on Napoleon) for having made clear what and how a general must act and support his beliefs concerning those he defends and must take a stand for. I imagine Ike comes next....
