The Man at the Wall has died

I'm sure many of us have seen this print, and quite a few probably have a copy of it.



Retired U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Jim Williams, who was the model for the living veteran, died 19 Dec at age 84.

Edit: His obituary

Rest in Peace. I first saw that print more than 20 years ago as a cadet. It's in my office now.
