"Some people fit into uniforms and are soldiers; some people don’t fit into uniforms and aren’t soldiers. Some pretend to be soldiers. I wanted to show that political causes change but soldiering is consistent. It’s about putting young guys in scary places, asking them to die for someone else, to die for a cause they might not understand."

- Collier Schorr
