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 stripes.com. E-mail your photos to: view@mail.estripes.osd.mil.

Submitted by Spc. Michael Weinsheimer 303rd Psy Op Company, Camp Liberty, Iraq. This picture was taken at Camp Liberty on May 20 as a sand storm moved in. We were actually outside at a meeting, and all I could think was, “This is not going to be fun!” When it was all said and done, we were pretty dusty.
