This Month’s Cover Painting
The Marines on the cover have just executed a vertical envelopment landing and are charging out of the landing zone to deploy according to the scheme of maneuver. Artist John De Grasse, a Marine himself for 20 years, painted this cover to commemorate the “Force in Readiness”—the U. S. Marine Corps on its 186th Anniversary.
