Artwork Treasured By The Goudy Family

Tom Gintjee was a highly talented cartoonist and designed the original 508th Red Devil logo.  He went on to produce many pieces of art for the regiment such as those used for seating or table placards at many reunions.

He also produced the "prayer" seen here which, as far as we know, is a one-of-a-kind and which was presented to Bill Goudy. Amongst the many details to be seen here is what may be the first and only rendition of the red devil logo as seen from the rear


Gintjee Christmas Card

   This hand drawn 1992 Christmas card is a Gintjee classic with its timeless plea for word peace and some unique symbolism included in its motif.
   Note the map coordinates bathed in the light of the Christmas Star that denote the location of Jerusalem .  Note also the cross formed by the shadow of the knife thrust into the ground.  Tom Gintjee was not only a great artist but a man with a clever mind.
   Tom wrote on the card that we should "Once in A While Remember Gintjee".
   We do, Tom, we certainly do.
