Dennis and Angelo

Dennis Bacceschi, left, and his uncle Angelo Gepponi pose together during one of their many visits in this undated photo. Gepponi officially served as a U.S. Army cook during World War II, but used his talent as an artist to document the everyday life of Soldiers at war. Bacceschi, who initially served as a fuel tanker driver after being drafted into the Army during Vietnam, inherited his uncle’s artistic skills and eventually transitioned to combat artist.
