WASHINGTON — Stars and Stripes reporters Steve Liewer and Terry Boyd have been named winners in the annual journalistic achievement competition sponsored by the Military Reporters and Editors organization.

Liewer was named in the MRE category for newspapers with less than 100,000 circulation for a series on a Germany-based Army unit fighting in Iraq.

Liewer’s three-part series on soldiers from the 1st Infantry Division’s 1st Battalion, 26th Infantry Regiment recounted the horrors of a mortar attack in Samarra, some 70 miles northwest of Iraq.

Boyd was honored in the less-than-100,000-circulation category for his photos of children killed in an insurgents’ attack, also in Iraq.

In one front-page shot, 1st Lt. Nicholas Bradley checked on an Iraqi child killed in a mortar attack in Baghdad meant for U.S. troops.

Bradley’s platoon, from the Fort Hood, Texas-based 1st Cavalry Division’s 91st Engineer Battalion, was in northern Baghdad when errant mortars killed two young boys.

MRE is an organization for reporters and editors to better work with the Department of Defense and to advance public understanding of the military, national security and homeland defense.
