“DUTY IN IRAQ” PROJECT ASKS SOLDIERS, FAMILIES TO SHARE PHOTOS
Arlington, VA --December 7, 2004 -- The Washington Post and washingtonpost.com have launched a project to gather a collection of photographs from American soldiers in Iraq and their families back home. The project, called “Duty in Iraq” is intended to give a glimpse of the everyday lives of servicemen and women stationed in Iraq.
Assistant Managing Editor Ju-Don Roberts, said, “News stories are not the only interesting stories from Iraq. By sharing personal photographs, soldiers and families get to tell their own stories about what life and work are like each day since the start of the war. Families still here at home also have a compelling story to tell.”
A selection of the collected photographs will be available for viewing on washingtonpost.com and in The Washington Post at a later date.
