More > prison narrative, Rags of Time: A Season In Prison (Beacon Press, 1972), written now 35 years ago. I humor myself by thinking of these pieces as fresh troops to send against the Surge, the Bush administration, and the latest war for oil. Fresh troops undeployed until now.

For I am old now, sick, and, in the fifth year of the Iraqi War, not of sound mind, being uncommonly depressed with stark feelings of impotence. (Perhaps I’m just channeling Democrats). Everything I’ve been able to write and publish these last forty-five years, despite black listing and bad jacketing, has been at root anti-war and it’s all to do again.< Less

All of the photos presented here were taken between February and August 2004 on and around Camp Arifjan, Kuwait and represent a small sample of the often ingenious modifications and adaptations applied to the vehicle by the units in theater.< Less
