For the past eight years, Edmonds artist Michael Reagan has been sketching free portraits of U.S. service members who have lost their lives in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere in the wars against terrorism.

Motivated by a desire to ensure those sacrifices have not been forgotten, Reagan has now completed more than 2,900 portraits for his Fallen Heroes Project. He has compiled many of them into posters he gives away around the country to people who will put them on display.

“These posters show the human cost of war on a large scale,” Reagan writes. Each image “is a loss that is immeasurable, especially for each family.”
