Gray Land

Photographer Barry Goldstein spent two years with the members of the Third Brigade Combat Team. He interviewed over 50 members of the Second Battalion, Sixty-ninth Armored Regiment, beginning in 2005 when they returned home from their second deployment in Iraq. When they deployed again in 2007, he was embedded with them twice. The result is the book “Gray Land: Soldiers on War,” a collection of portraits, field photographs, and candid narratives in the soldiers’ own words about serving in the army and the toll of war. Listen to Goldstein’s thoughts about his project and excerpts from his interviews with the soldiers, edited by Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly senior associate producer Patti Jette Hanley.
