Mike Thornton with Portraitist Nick DelCalzo

Nick is a friened of mine... a fellow Coloradoan.

With "Medal of Honor -- Portraits of Valor Beyond the Call of Duty" Nick has produced a landmark piece of history. In the 145 years of the Medal'sa history no one had ever undertaken the daunting taks of making formal portraits of the nation's Recipients.

A richly moving testament to our military heroes--137 recipients of the Medal of Honor, in photographs as they are today. Photographed over the course of five years, Del Calzo's portraits present these icons of valor with dignity and reverence. The book has received extensive critical acclaim nationally on TV, cable and print, including the NY Times Best Seller List for four consecutive weeks. Now in its second (and expanded) edition.
