Karla Comfort received a lot of looks and even some salutes from people when she drove from Benton, Ark., to Camp Pendleton, Calif., in her newly-painted, custom Hummer H3 March 2. The vehicle is adorned with the likeness of her son, 20-year-old Lance Cpl. John M. Holmason, and nine other Marines with F Company, 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division who where all killed by the same improvised explosive device blast in Fallujah, Iraq, in December. Two hundred and fifty man-hours later, Powell had completed the vehicle. The custom job would have cost $25,000 Out of respect for Karla Comfort's loss and the sacrifices the Marines made, AirbrushGuy &Co. did it for free. Comfort only had to purchase the paint, which cost $3,000. 'I love it,' she said. 'I'm really impressed with it, and I think John would be happy with the vehicle He would have a big smile on his face because he loved Hummers.' This made me tear up when I saw it..I feel horrible for the woman and her family and all the other families that has lost someone from this war..Has anyone here lost somone? And or have you made any memorials for them? And if so..I will first say im so sorry for all of you also that have lost someone..

That is a really incredible story! I wish though you had a picture of the hummer. That would have been interesting to see. Let us know if you get one or have a link to it. I must say I've been lucky in not losing anyone in this 'war'. And I feel for all those that have.

My husband is actually stationed at Camp Pendleton and the pictures do it no justice, it brought chills to your body just seeing it in person, what a wonderful thing to do in support of the troops and s a rememberance for her son
