EXIT WOUNDS:
Soldiers’ Stories—Life after Iraq and Afghanistan
Photographs and Interviews by Jim Lommasson, Introduction by Jonathan Shay, MD, PhD
• Veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars tell their stories about war, and life after war
• In their own words, 50 veterans speak the truth about what they saw and what they did
• We don’t know the men and women who we send to war—our soldiers want to tell us their stories
This compelling and timely collaboration between photographer/writer Jim Lommasson and American
veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars presents Lommasson’s portraits and interviews as well as soldiers’
own photographs from the war zones. The stories expressed in words and in images are intimate, profound,
and timeless. In their own words, 50 men and women speak their truth about these wars—what they saw
and what they did. They talk about the wars’ impact on themselves and on their loved ones at home as well
as on the Iraqis and Afghanis caught in the crossfire. They talk about why they went to war and how the war
came home with them. Our soldiers need to tell their stories, and we need to listen.

TWO SCOOPS OF HOOAH!:
The T-Wall Art of Kuwait and Iraq
George Hauer with Robin Whitney
• Over 270 striking images created by Coalition Gulf War soldiers
• Concrete barriers and blast walls turned into artistic memorials and later destroyed by Iraqi forces
• Dedicated to all those who have served, are serving, and those who have sacrificed
Within the pages of this book you will see how cement structures, intended for barriers, are transformed
into pictorial walls that identify military units and honor service members who gave their lives for freedom
in the GulfWar.They provide an
esprit de corps
for their unit members who are forward deployed from their
home base, post, or camp. The unit colors and insignias displayed on these walls become the thoughts and
memories of the men and women who have fought, and for those who have died for freedom. Memorial
walls proclaim in silence the ultimate sacrifice of service.This artwork represents Coalition Soldiers, Sailors,
Airmen, Marines, Coast Guard, and D.O.D. Civilians who answered the call of freedom and deployed far
from home and family. When these walls decay and are turned to rubble, this book will become a lasting
legacy to those who have served in Kuwait and Iraq.
