Cliff Leonard, a Vietnam Marine turned sculptor, started creating memorial busts for families of young fallen Marines or Navy Corpsmen several years ago. So far, he has created 37 busts in clay, and the 38th is on the modelling stand. Although he limits his subjects to those from Florida, word has spread about what he is doing and Cliff has been overwhelmed with requests from families of these young men and women who died in the line of duty.Can you help? If you can take the time to sculpt one bust for one family, NSS will provide the clay.
