Jungle Crossing

Central Highlands of Vietnam 

by U.S. Army Combat Artist Frank M. Thomas (LTC)

Original 60" x 48" Acrylic/Canvas Painting
Artist's Collection, Holden, Utah

Background:
     Crossing a mountain stream in Vietnam's central highlands jungle, this small search and destroy force climbs slowly out of sight up the mountainside and into a dense tangle of teak and banyan trees.

 

The 1st Lieutenant infantry platoon leader directs his men across the highly exposed swift water, while keeping a wary eye out for any possible enemy activity along their back trail. 1st Lieutenant Frank Thomas and his combat art teams researched their art by taking part in operations of this type... as soldiers first, then as artists.
