If I thought I saw chaos before, this was even worse. I can't tell you the number of bodies of American Marines that were lying face down in the water. I have one painting of that. I thought long and hard about it when I made the painting, should I show how many there were? Well, no, I'd need a big canvas for that. So I did one body, and I called it The Last Full Measure.
