How an American Soldier is Made

soldier066This is a fantastic series of photographs titled How an American soldier is made.

For 27 months, Ian Fisher, his parents and friends, and the U.S. Army allowed Denver Post reporters and a photographer to watch and chronicle his recruitment, induction, training, deployment, and, finally, his return from combat.

As a combat infantryman with stints in Iraq and Afghanistan and a former basic training company commander, this is a telling view of what it can be like for a young soldier straight into the Infantry.

    The multimedia project, including all the photos, video and special features, can be viewed at
