Field Mess Line

Sgt. Angelo Gepponi, who served as a cook with the 77th Infantry Division in World War II, would paint scenes from daily life around camp. This watercolor, called "Field Mess Line (Untitled)," depicts Soldiers waiting to get chow. Gepponi's combat works will be displayed in the "Cook, Pot and Palette" exhibit at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, until December 2015.
