The war in Iraq: Embedded with the U.S. Military

After returning from assignment in Afghanistan in 2003, Times photojournalist Rick Loomis asked to be sent out in the first wave of journalists to cover the Invasion of Iraq. He spent several weeks traveling in the back of a canvas topped Humvee with U.S. Troops as they crossed the Iraq desert en route to Baghdad in April of 2003. Loomis has covered assignments in more than 25 countries, spending more than two years in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Check back for more reflections on the visual coverage of the Iraq War by the Los Angeles Times.
