American Wars: Graffiti

  
  
     
  
  
  
Graffiti written by soldiers on bathroom walls in Baghdad, Mosul, and Ali Al Salem, Kuwait, the main staging point for U.S. troops entering and leaving Iraq.
     
  
Oftentimes, soldiers would add their own commentary to pre-existing graffiti, in this case one soldiers tribute to the fallen soldiers of his unit morphed into a commentary about the war.
