The work that comprises Soldiers, Marines and a Sailor consists of two bodies of portraits of US military service members. The first series, titled Soldiers and Marines, consists of a diptych portrait of U.S. Army Soldiers and an accompanying grid of portraits of U.S. Marines.

The second set of portraits, nearly the opposite of Soldiers in terms of their scope, is called A Sailor and consists of portraits of the artist's father taken by fellow sailors while he served in the Navy during the Korean War. These small black and white portraits, overlaid with the text written on the back of the originals, allow room for a loose narrative of what life during wartime was like for the artist's own father sixty years ago and provide a historical counterpoint to the full-color, up-close contemporary portraits from the series Soldiers and Marines.
