Army Men by GOOD ART HLYWD:
“Technically not all these guys are Army men, some are Soldiers and Marines. And they’re true to the original Vietnam era Louis Marx & Co. toys you grew up with… with a couple differences. Their heads have been substituted for a Jack Skull and these ones are solid Sterling Silver. They’ll capture the imagination and rekindle that urge to play. A drop of crazy glue on the base and you can keep your own security force perched atop your monitor and looking over your shoulder. ”

Casualties of War, Plastic moulded figurines by Dorothy:
“The hell of war comes home. In July 2009 Colorado Springs Gazettea published a two-part series entitled “Casualties of War”. The articles focused on a single battalion based at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, who since returning from duty in Iraq had been involved in brawls, beatings, rapes, drunk driving, drug deals, domestic violence, shootings, stabbings, kidnapping and suicides. Returning soldiers were committing murder at a rate 20 times greater than other young American males. A seperate investiagtion into the high suicide rate among veterans published in the New York Times in October 2010 revealed that three times as many California veterans and active service members were dying soon after returning home than those being killed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. We hear little about the personal hell soldiers live through after returning home.”
