Support our mission

Nobody knows better than Stars and Stripes what you go through downrange. Except you. So we want your help in telling your story. E-mail us your digital photos, depicting what life is like wherever you are, whether on the FOB or on a mission somewhere in the wild. It’s “Your View” of your role in the wars, whether Iraq, Afghanistan or somewhere else. Candid (not posed) shots are best, and please include your name, unit, location and a short caption explaining the picture and your thoughts when you took the shot. Selected photos will be used in the paper and here at E-mail your photos to:

Submitted by Eric Aubrey, project manager, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Afghanistan Engineer District. Lt. Col. Fred Schwing envisions himself cruising around the countryside in an old English car located at the Afghan National Army logistics headquarters in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Submitted by Sgt. Matthew Niblack, 1st Personnel Command, Kuwait. Spc. Jessie Duckett works with me and in this picture, he is waiting to fire his weapon. We were lying down on the firing range and I yelled to Jessie. He looked up, and I got this picture.

Submitted by Sgt. Jonathon Lubecky, LSA Anaconda. As an overzealous former Marine now in the Guard, I love a good joke. This is my Interceptor Body Armor after I finished inserting the rounds.

Submitted by Spc. Jason Morefield, Camp Taji, Iraq. This was taken while on a patrol just north of Baghdad near Camp Taji. The driver shaking hands with the little Iraqi boy is Pfc. William Murphy. The tank is Company C, 1st Battalion, 66th Armor Regiment, 4th Infantry Division.
