Bernie “Doc” Duff: The Last Breath

Artist’s Note: This is my tribute to the Vietnam Nurses, who gave so much of themselves and have received so little recognition for their sacrifice. To those of us who served alongside of them so many years ago, no explanation is needed-we KNOW what you did and my hopes are that some, when they look upon this image, will also know, at least a little better. You walked with us, from beginning to end.

The “mirror version” of this painting called, “Hoi Tho Cuio Cung (The Last Breath)” depicts the same view, only in that painting the people involved are Viet Cong soldiers.
