    I’d be interested to know how many years apart these are. Most of them look like they aged 10 years or so…

    This looks like those Montana Meth ads, it’s kind of sad what war can do.

    I agree about the lighting though, the photographer did want them looking weathered.

  • Probably 6 months to a year difference between the two photos; anout the length of a standard deployment.

    It would nice if we could actually see the third photo…
