    Don't like it.

    As a former cavalryman myself, the planes just screw the whole thing to pieces. With the planes, there's no spirit in the pic; but then again there wouldn't be much spirit without the planes either. It just doesn't really do a good job capturing the United States Cavalry.................

    Ummm I think it's pretty cluttered all in all. What is Uncle Sam doing anyway, floating away in a hot air balloon?

    The Aircraft were Army Air Corp, the drawing represents Civil War, WWII Vietnam and Persian Gulf wars. Unusual for an artwork to honor all four, though others were left out. Don't know if it is one work or if it is four assembled together.
