The U.S. Army Center of Military History had two soldier-artists on staff at the time this display was assembled. The work of these featured artists represent events in Rwanda, Somalia, Haiti and Panama, and were created in a studio from sketches and photographs produced while the artists were deployed in the field.
Sergeant Jeffrey Manuszak - U.S. Army, graduate of Ray College of Design, Chicago, Illinois, BFA 1995.
