"The gun is the rallying point of the detachment, its flag, its banner. It is that to which the men look, by which they stand, with which they fall. As long as the gun is theirs they are unconquered, victorious; when the gun is lost, all is lost. It is their religion to fight until the enemy is out of range or until the gun itself is withdrawn, or until both it and the detachment are in the hands of the foe."
"In many situations that seemed desperate, the artillery has been a most vital factor."
- Gen. Douglas MacArthur
"The harder the fighting and the longer the war, the more the infantry, and in fact all the arms, lean on the gunners."
- Field Marshal Benard L. Montgomery
