A Purple Heart In Green!

Artist Mows 850,000-Square-Foot Purple Heart Into N.Y. Field

An artist has mowed an 850,000-square-foot rendering of a Purple Heart medal into a park field to honor the 75th anniversary of the medal that commends servicemembers killed or wounded in action.

The rendering, which was unveiled Sunday in Thomas Bull Memorial Park in this city 55 miles northwest of NYC, was done by field artist and painter Roger Baker, whose past works include the Statue of Liberty and Elvis Presley.

According to Baker, the project followed a chance meeting with Bill Bacon, membership director of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. After meeting with officials from The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor and Orange County parks, the plan was on.

Somehow, you just know this guy wasn't a Leftist...! I was going to say 'here's a Purple Heart Jon Cary didn't deserve'--but he didn't deserve any of his others, either...

You have to wonder how someone is able to do this without a plane.
