Ian Fisher - American SoldierFor 27 months, Ian Fisher, his parents and friends, and the U.S. Army allowed Denver Post reporters and a photographer to watch and chronicle his recruitment, induction, training, deployment, and, finally, his return from combat. A selection of photos from Ianís journey are posted below.

Ah, the making of boys and girls into responsible men and women. Some of that brought back a lot of memories. I never made it through basic. Too homesick, I guess. Now I work for them.
Thank You for your Service, Ian Fisher.

I liked that, good stuff. They should do this more often. Surely a good recruitment tool.Trigger Pull,

holy crap that's a great photo piece...
wow - what an incredible piece of work, I love it when a photographer follows someone around and tells part of their life - one of my classmates in a photo class in college did that, but not near the story this had behind it...-=Twan007

I know he's not typical or we wouldn't have the military ass kickers we have. But I really wish they could have followed someone who was a bit more mature.Pleasing nobody, one person at a time.

As an old soldier who went in at the tender age of 16 (the old brown shoe army) and spent 25 yrs in, I looked at the photos from a different perspective. Very nice and touching BUT.
In Jan 07 photo he is a PFC E-3; when he comes home he is an E-2; he gets his ass chewed out and cries he is lonesome and wants to go home. (well I guess some of us did that at the early stages). He admits to drug abuse and AWOL. He has to to to a "rehab" platoon. Not something to be real proud of.
Given he did go to Iraq, not Canada, but I sure hope he doesn't want to make the military a career. There are better one out there then him.
Flame away all you want, but us old soldiers kinda look at thing differently, specially when we made a Career of it and rose to Senior NCO/Officer rank.
