While the Iraq War is being fought halfway around the world, we find relevancy right here on campus. UW Oshkosh has students and alumni who have already seen the war firsthand in the Middle East or are awaiting the order to serve abroad. This multimedia project -- which includes a book, a series of podcasts and a photo exhibit -- gives these student soldiers and Marines a forum to tell the world why they enlisted, what they did and what they felt at the front lines of war.
These UW Oshkosh students and alumni have seen a world that most of us will never see, and War: Through Their Eyes is their story.
The interviews are conducted by Grace Lim's Spring 2009 Writing for the Media class. Photos are taken by student photographer Amber Patrick.
