THE DENVER POST HIT A HOME RUN BACK IN 2007 when photojournalist Craig F. Walker followed a young man by the name of Ian Fisher from his decision to join the military to basic training, to eventual deployment to Iraq—and finally documenting his return home. I discovered them buried deep in the Denver Post web site, and knew immediately I had to turn my readers on to them. These pictures are extraordinarily sensitive and revealing, showing the power of images to tell a story.

I have given you a few images from each chapter of Ian Fisher’s personal journey into (and out of) the US Army, but I highly encourage you to see them all here. Your eyes may just open a wee bit wider, like mine did.

And, btw, Craig’s work was awarded the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography.
