Combat Camera: Military Photographer of the Year winners


Today, we briefly turn our attention away from books to salute the winners of the recent Military Photographer of the Year competition.  Below, you'll find just a few of the outstanding winners from the thousands of entries in the 2011 MILPHOG (as we liked to call it when I was in the Army).  I spent my career as a photojournalist in the U.S. Army, but I never came close to the art and emotion found in these images.  All photos were taken by servicemembers and were not posed or electronically manipulated in any way.  There are more than a thousand stories in each of them.  (Click the photos to enlarge them)
