A black and white linocut image of two men, one riding a bicycle and the other standing on the back rack of the bike, playing the banjo and singing. Word bubble banners that come out of his mouth sing, “Red, white, and blue, I trusted in you, and you never even told me why.” The road on which they ride has the words, “A Ride till the End of the Afghan War,” against a red background showing a rural American landscape. Smaller text in black states, “Jacob George, a 3-tour Afghan War Vet, rode over 8,000 miles across the U.S.A. with fellow veterans and supporters. For 3 years, they visited hundreds of communities where they shared their stories and songs for peace.”
