Bryan David Snuffer celebrates the graduation of four pilots from a year long program of the United States Air Force. Today, this image honours one of the themes of the Fourth of July, gratitude for the men and women who put their training, determination and lives on the flight deck and into the world's skies in defense of an ideal, the rule of law established in the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and the American Constitution. A song assures that God's eye is upon the sparrow and not one falls to earth without his awareness. Snuffer has that quality in a human form. He has his mind upon the aircraft of the American military, foremost the planes and helicopters of the U.S. Coast Guard. In times of tragedy, his art honours those lost in the call of duty, and these images are poignant to behold. Like the heroes of the Coast Guard, Snuffer's commemorative images can never be forgotten.
