The Hospital Corpsman Medical Caduceus Shirt made in America!
Back in 2009, a retired lieutenant colonel suggested rather emphatically that I consider working on a drawing dedicated to the United States Marine Corps. His request led to a five-year immersion in military history, and the production of half a dozen complex designs in honor of our armed forces, with more in progress.
Not long after completing the drawing Uncommon Valor (http://www.dsart.com/gallery/item/marines), I received an e-mail from a Marine who had seen the work. He had been wounded numerous times serving in Vietnam, and asked me to draw a Caduceus picture that would be dedicated to all Corpsmen & Medics.
"As a Vietnam Veteran and a three time recipient of the purple heart, I have a special love for OUR CORPSMEN," he told me. He hoped I could come up with a design that would cross all branches of combat service, honoring those selfless heroes who enter into the battle to save lives. He wanted to purchase a print for the corpsman who had saved his life.
With a background in medicine, and two years of research in military imagery, I was able to squeeze this sketch onto paper in fairly short order. The design immediately met with the veteran's approval, and a copy of the finished drawing was sent to him as soon as it was complete.
Medic! (http://www.dsart.com/gallery/item/medic) has since become a favorite of veterans and military healthcare providers across all services, and remains one of the most popular designs in the entire DS Art line.
The caduceus design contains a helmet with traditional red cross emblem, bandage, blood bag, butterfly, clamps, challenge coins, corpsman’s knife, dog tags (Stan N. Harmsway), dressing pouch, oral & nasal airways, pain pills, safety pin, scalpel, scissors, side arm, stethoscope, stop watch, stretcher, sulfa, syringe, thermometer (silver bullet), tongue depressor, and a Purple Heart.
