The first thing I knew that I had to do was to talk to them,” said painter Dustin Neece, at the moving ceremony held last night at the First Congregational Church, where his painting , “Honoring the Spirit”, was unveiled. The painting was inspired by the tale of seven Marines, all with Hopkinton ties, who fought in the battle of Iwo Jima and returned home.

Neece said he was approached a year ago to paint a portrait to honor these men.

“They opened up, they shared stories, stories that people hadn’t heard before,” said Neece. “This is my way of saying thank you.”
