A day out with the Marines

A day out with the Marines

Last week I was fortunate enough to get an opportunity to join Col. Craig Streeter - a former Marine Cobra Pilot, and the latest poor soul to wear the hat of USMC Combat Artist - when he spent a couple of days warming up his skills before he heads for Afghanistan at the end of the month. The rest of us were there to give a little support to his endeavor and to give as much advice as we could on operating as an artist in a hostile environment. I mean more hostile than a newsroom. Along for the ride were former USMC Combat Artist - Mike Fay, illustrator/war artist - Victor Juhasz, and myself.
