I have recently been informed that there are a few members of this site that have gone to Iraq and/or Afghanistan. Now, This has been a lifelong dream of mine to shoot combat photography. I am at the point now where it has gone beyond just a mild obsession to an inescapable desire. At this point I am willing to do absolutely anything to get over there. I have a brother who worked at the Tribune for a long time, and he told me that this would be a good place to get answers as to how to accomplish my goal. He also said that from what he understands, the best route is to get embedded. However, whether it’s freelance or embedding that is best, I still have no idea where to start. If those of you have had experience with this, I would greatly appreciate any an all advice you would give me.
