Luis Sinco, a photojournalist for the Los Angeles Times, documented the marines assault on Fallouja in November, 2004. While capturing the conflict, he took this photograph of Marine Lance Corporal James Blake Miller that became an “icon of the Iraq War.”

In this wrenching piece on MediaStorm (Tilzy.TV Page), shot by Sinco, scored and narrated by Miller, we sense the haunting pain from the horror of war, and the bond its formed between two very different people.

“To look back at it now and just think about holding a rifle, and firing at another human being, it’s gut wrenching as well as, you know, brain wrecking. How do you justify it regardless of what your causes are or what their causes are?”

We don’t often enough spend the time to consider the profound impact of the Iraq war, not only on the lives of Iraqi’s, but on American culture.
