The U.S. Navy began voluntary mobilizations of Naval Reserve Sailors which included artists and illustrators. LCDR Griffith Bailey Coale, USNR began painting historic images of U.S. Navy operations during the Neutrality Patrols in the North Atlantic during 1940-41. He illustrated the sinking of the USS Reuben James DD-245, on 31 October 1941, just prior to the U.S. entry into WWII. In 1942, he travelled to Pearl Harbor and later to Midway Island to recreate scenes of the battles based on photographs and eyewitness accounts.

Artists and illustrators, like CDR Monica Allen-Perin, USNR continue to document activities ashore and afloat during peace and war.
