J.D. JOHANNES is back from Iraq, as are the Marines he’s been covering. Via email he adds:

One of the Marines asked this morning if, knowing what I do now, I would still have done it?


I am coming home sore, bruised, tired, financially destitute, unemployed and probably soon to be homeless, but I have witnessed more acts of courage in one Summer than most people will see in their entire life.

He’ll start editing his documentary in a couple of days.
