The above picture was created by Alex Raymond, who created Flash Gordon in 1934. What is less known is that he joined the US Marine Corps in 1944. The caption of the image reads “A painting by Capt. A.G. Raymond, USMCR, depicts in its impressive sincerity the worship and reverence that our fighting men carry to the very battle lines. The strength of manly character typified by the American Marine is vividly portrayed in this factual interpretation of men at prayer.”
