I'm trying to determine the value of this large painting donated to our museum, but I don't know what it is called or who the artist is.

Any help is appreciated!

The artist is Scott Mills.  It's a composite drawing based on several Korea photos which was used for the cover art for the Bantam war book  "Marine!  The Life of Chesty Puller"
