    Caption: “An Army flight medic. The mask represents our country shedding tears for our military on one side, and our military shedding tears for our country on the other side. Quotes on the military side (which also symbolizes death via the skull) read, “Shed no more tears, your medic will shed them for you,” and “I have destroyed my life and myself so that others may live.”” Mask by a military service member from art therapy sessions at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Temporary exhibit of art therapy masks on display at National Museum of Health and Medicine, Silver Spring, Md. in Aug-Sept. 2016. (Disclosure: This image has been cropped to emphasize the subject.)
