Luis Jurado, Jr has been in and out of combat zones 2007, starting with the US Army in 1991 with multiple combat deployments and later, 2005, working with a large defense contractor both in Iraq and Afghanistan. Growing up I had a strong passion in wanting to do something to help others. I wanted to be a city police officer like my father, but saw that I could immediately make a difference in working in the combat zones. Luis is currently working in heavy combat zones and for his privacy and safety, we purposely left out additional details about his personal life. Luis found the Graffiti of War Project through a mutual contact of ours and since joining our team has sent hundreds of images from all across Iraq and most recently from Afghanistan. Luis is Executive Director, Field Operations and is a full partner.
