"In the scheme of painting this whole picture in this ambush, - that was just my brush stroke. It's not above and beyond,- it was a brush stroke - the picture wouldn't be complete without a brush stroke...it wasn't more important than any other. It just happen to be my brush stroke that completed the picture."
- Sargeant Salvatore Guinta
