Dirty Canteen is a collaboration of this generation's veteran artists and is actively committed to helping fellow Veterans with opportunities for expression and support. We also educate the public. Our goal is to exhibit our work in institutions across the country. The Dirty Canteen is a metaphor for our experiences in the military. We have served in conflicts from the Gulf War, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq, and we would like to share our experiences and knowledge.

In Flanders Fields
In Flanders Fields by John McCrae, May 1915 In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.
British Army Anyone who talks badly about our military needs to remember that they only have have the right to "free speech" because of the men and women who serve or who have served in the military during the past 900 years!!!! Free speech is not a God given right it has to be earned by the men and women who are willing to risk their lives for it.,
Alexander The Great was known as one of the most important and successful leaders of all time. His reign started in Macedon and stretched all the way to the Himalayas. He was also a very powerful military leader, and never lost a battle.
The First Anglo-Afghan War (also known as Auckland's Folly) was fought between the British East India Company and Afghanistan from 1839 to 1842, which resulted in the deaths of 4,500 British and Indian soldiers, plus 12,000 of their camp followers by the warring Afghan tribal fighters. It was one of the first major conflicts during the Great Game, the 19th century competition for power and influence in Asia between the United Kingdom and Russia.
