Photographer with the 10th Mountain Division in Afghanistan

Chad Hunt Photographs
10th Mountain Division

For this soldier's story, go here.

Chad Hunt, photographer, had the opportunity to go to Afghanistan. He spent time with a light infantry unit from the 10th Mountain Division from Fort Drum. While he was there he blogged and posted pictures of his journey with these fine young men and women - read back into November.

His pictures are beautiful - they take you into a brief window on the existence of being at a remote outpost - KOP - Korengal Outpost in Korengal Valley. His pictures of the countryside, the soldiers and the living conditions are a priceless view into their lives. I don't have the words to describe his work, except follow the links and look at it. It is worth your time.

Thank you for taking teh time to write about my work. I am doing my best to get these images out there for people to see. I also have images from teh korengal outpost here:
A good friend of mine, photographer John D McHugh ( ) was just wounded two days ago while on patrol with a unit near Kamdesh. The bullet hit him just below his body armor in his stomach and exited through his back. He is recovering at Bagram now and will be ok.
check out his blog for some of his stories.
thanks again - chad

As much as we try, we don't understand the sacrifice our brave men and women are making for our freedom. This pics bring us a little closer to that understanding. My prayers are with them. Thanks for the beautiful photographs.
