The big news is that we have received and published our first batch of photos! Click on over to our photos page and have a look. If you have any you'd like to submit, send them to us in an email or publish them to our facebook page.
This is as good a time as any to re-cap our objectives. We want to share a side of modern military life that hasn't been talked about or published very much. Graffiti, drawings, or writings in various places has been a part of combat since soldiers had five spare minutes and something to scrawl with. "Kilroy" was all over the place during World War II. It goes on today, in the oddest of places. More to the point, it's more than just random scribblings, and it's more than just art. Each cartoon, slogan, or writing is a snapshot of how that person felt at that moment. We feel that these snapshots, taken as a whole, will show how the current conflict, this thing called asymmetric warfare, affects our Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen. Because a vast majority of this graffiti wasn't intended as 'fine art' it carries a blunt honesty about how that person was affected by the realities of combat.
Once we amass a large enough collection, we'll publish a book and donate a fair share of the proceeds to charities that directly benefit veterans of Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait. This is our generation, these are our comrades, and we'd like to offer them our respect and gratitude by saying, "We remember. You're not alone. And, thanks."
