Man Who Honors Fallen Receives Increasing CoverageSalem-News.com
Q. Madp of iraqwarheroes.org has dedicated his life to honoring those who have fallen in service to their country.
(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Q Madp is relentless in his quest to honor our war dead. For years, he has traveled to funerals of NW soldiers to photograph the somber events for the family. He never charges, and every family is provided a set of photos.
Q. says that as he has learned to polish his approach to this unique way of bestowing honor, he learned that there are many unanticipated costs associated with it. Now to Q. Madp's benefit, his work is also attracting a growing amount of media attention.
He recently received a 2002 automobile from an Oregon car dealership in The Dalles to help him carry on his mission.
Another example is a donated billboard in the state of Washington. Sue Rothwell, the owner of Gerties restaurant in Lakewood, Washington, donated the space to Q. because she believes in what he is doing.
She met the busy photographer when needed a place to park his car, during a soldier's memorial procession that was going to cross the Freedom Bridge which is nearby.
Now the story of the donation is showing up in places like the Oregonian Newspaper, Lars Larson's radio show and the NW Cable News Network. Their recent story on Q. is below courtesy of NW Cable News and YouTube.
His Website iraqwarheroes.org features the name of almost every soldier who has died in Afghanistan and Iraq.
