About:

I made an American Navy ship in war. In a hot summer day they would protect us and help us. We will cheer them through thick and thin.

When we are at war we will count on four different people, one of them is the navy. They will help us and we will support them through thick and thin. When bombs are bursting, guns are firing, missiles are shooting and cannons are booming we will trust and know they will save us. “I have not yet begun to fight,” a quote from Captain John Paul Jones.

I made this art to show how I felt about the Navy and how they felt. This is also for my grandpa because he and many other people went to war. Be strong, be brave, and be American. To show our support the ones who have fallen in war.

About:

We (Anson and Alex) created this artwork using one main idea, teamwork. We helped one another by giving each other ideas and getting materials to work. We could have never finished without each other.

We were inspired by a picture we found on Google of soldiers with a flag behind them. We put them on a hill and put a flag behind them and put jets behind them and the jets spelled out in the sky “Our Heroes”.
