Extraneous "to" before "protecting." This is funny! Nice job Mom, overreact and crush the kid's confidence in his art, small price for an anti-war lesson!

The 'to' is fine. Not required but not excess.

This is fantastic for more than a few reasons.. it's good to imagine that kind of mom feeling dumb for being so unnecessarily critical

Okay, this one just took TWO left turns when I wasn't expecting them.

I with wrybred, either the 'to' is extra, or the 'ing' on 'protecting' is extra, if either were removed it would be correct. I have a slight preference for 'to protect' over 'protecting' in this instance because it places a slightly greater emphasis on the /intentions/ of the men rather than on the results.

More to the point, I like Jimmy's response.

And yes, I gave up water colors for colored pencils at about age 4 when I realized what it meant that no one knew what I'd painted unless I told them.

The sombreros seem to be winning.

"..gave their lives to protecting.." is fine by me. It just changes the implied meaning of "gave" from "sacrificed" (they died for their country) to "dedicated" (they've dedicated their lives to the service of their country knowing it might get them killed; it just hasn't so far).

Coming up on Lifetime, Splat Hat, the story of one love that burned brightly during the war of the Seagulls and Sombreros.

Was this in your disk of clipart, or did you draw it?

I put it to you that you drew it.
