The Trip Wire Project Continues in 2018 - Video Introduction to The Trip Wire Project https://vimeo.com/105690498
As conceived, the final panel on the Trip Wire Project is continuing after a one year hiatus. The panel is titled The Injured and includes a stitch for each non-combatant injured in Iraq and Afghanistan since the U.S. involvement. Since the cost of vintage military surplus trip wire has tripled since the beginning of the project in 2013, I have created a Go Fund Me page. The cost of this wire which is critical to the project will run to well over a $1,000.00. To make a contribution please visit Go Fund Me. even a $10.00 donation will help. Thank you. https://www.gofundme.com/mcolburntripwire
