Skyler Hayes...Local Artist Paints Tribute to Military
by Michael Thornburg The Jetmore Republican
He has done it at four previous locations and finally finds his way home as Skyler Hayes, of Jetmore, completes his work on a mural dedicated to military veterans just east of Jetmore along Highway 156. Hayes has painted similar murals on Pride Ag Resources equipment at Howell, the Cimarron elevator, Ingalls office, and the feed mill at Dodge City...but this tribute is close enough to home for local residents to appreciate his talent and his dedication to U.S. military troops and veterans. "Any artist wants their work out in front of people," Hayes, a U.S. Army veteran from the Vietnam era, commented, "but murals such as this one is my small way of giving back and showing that I appreciate what our military does and the sacrifices that some have made."
"I have several family members who serve in the U.S. Military and know many local people who have served or currently serve," commented Pride Ag Resources Hanston branch manager Paul Weber, who requested the mural, "and felt one of Skyler's murals would do well to serve all within the community that we serve."
Skyler Hayes, husband and father to two Hodgeman County Longhorns with junior Kyle and freshman Rachel, has spent 15 years with Pride Ag Resources and currently serves as the Safety Director for the company. After painting his first mural at Howell, the response for additional murals has increased and eventually brought him home where he could share his talent at the Bosse location on an anhydrous ammonia tank...easily seen by all who pass by.
I for one want to thank Mr. Hayes for sharing his talent with this and other communities and for his dedication to honoring those who serve and those who have served in this special and very public manner. All should take the opportunity to make the couple mile trek east of Jetmore to view this incredible work of art...and while you are there...maybe say a word or two for those who fight to keep this country free.
