AD 105. The birth of paper making.
The process of paper making was so incredibly simple. I believe that the most intriguing part of it was the fact that it was made out of the used uniforms of veterans.
I have always supported our troops. My Uncle Paul was a veteran of the Korean War, and I have several other family members that were also on active duty at one point in their lives. Seeing the uniforms get cut up made me emotional. Knowing how much pain and sacrifice these brave men and women went through for us and our country is completely unbelievable.
I was especially impressed with the man behind the art, Drew Cameron. He also was a part of the military, and decided to find a creative outlet afterwards. I find it absolutely incredible what he is doing, and how he is helping those who have retired from the military. I have the utmost respect for him.
Combat paper was an incredible experience for both me, and the rest of the JSC community that attended. I am truly enlightened by my experience.
