Army cook, Soldier artist

Former Sgt. Yvette Pino of the 101st Airborne Division poses in Iraq in 2005-2006. Although officially, she deployed as a cook, Pino spent much of her time painting unit crests. (During her first deployment in 2003-2004, she also participated in many convoys.) Today she is a painter and printmaker who often uses military themes in her work. Two of her pieces will hang in at the Pentagon for a year as part of a special Veteran Artist Program-sponsored exhibit. (Photo courtesy of former Sgt. Yvette Pino)
