Review:

Magazine of the Marines - Leatherneck -- "Brevity is the key to Cannon's work in his watercolors, pencil sketches, poetry, and autobiography. He evokes emotional responses by using all to tell his simple but fascinating tale."      "As a combat artist he wasted little time in discussions about the abstract, the great impressionists, or the Dutch painters of the Golden Age. He was busy trying to capture images of the Marines in combat and stay alive while doing it. ...he captured it all because he was there when it happened and kept the memory vividly alive."     "Pain isn't always temporary--but pride is forever!"
