I met Private 1st Class Greg Miller when I was in Iraq a few months ago as an embedded journalist. He took a photo of me in his Stryker vehicle, and we started talking about photography. He told me that he takes his camera with him on missions and wherever he goes. I asked him to keep in touch.

While he was back on leave a few weeks ago, we had a chance to catch up a bit and talk about his photography. I used that conversation and his photographs for this video.

Greg keeps a website with his photos at:

As the son of a career soldier, the Army has a special place in my heart. Greg’s photos show a piece of a soldier’s world that most of us will never see. He will be deployed in Iraq until September and will continue to post images from his tour. Enjoy.
