Telling a True War Story: Movies vs. Truth (A Photo Essay)

We have so many war films that depict it as "cool" or as an adventure packed with excitement. But its not real. 
This is Hollywood.
These are Hollywood.
No. War is not fun. War is not a game. War is serious.
People die. Children die. 
Fathers die.
Its a lot of walking.
Waiting. In the heat.

In the snow.
Soldiers lose friends. 
And so many don't come home.
So let's think before we tell a war story. Is it the truth? Does is honor our soldiers? Or is it a "better version of the story."
