Diana Wilks is not only one of my beloved art collectors, but she's also a U.S. Army veteran where she served our country for 23 years. In her own words: "I was a Parachute Rigger, which means I jumped out of Airplains, helicopter's, etc. My job was to rig personnel, medical supply, ammunition, any type of vehicles from Hummers to tanks, artillery, pretty much anything, to be dropped from an aircraft while in flight to wherever in the world a unit needed it, on time, on target. A unit's mission depended on me as a rigger to ensure they had all necessary equipment to complete their mission whether training or combat related. A huge responsibility but a good one."
Thank you Diana and millions of other Americans (including my Dad!) who have dedicated and sacrificed their lives to serving our country! Happy Memorial Day 2016! 🇺🇸
