Spc. Justin Phillips, a Bossier City, La., native, with Bravo Company, 2nd Squadron, 38th Cavalry
Regiment, 504th Battlefield Surveillance Brigade, interacts with a child during a key leader engagement
in Ganjitsu Kalay, Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, 30 Sep., 2011. Key leader engagements allow coalition
forces the opportunities to meet with local elders and leaders of tribes to learn about issues in their
communities and be able to offer help in finding solutions. U.S. forces cleared 14 improvised explosive
devices from this child’s village while conducting this operation. (U.S. Army photo by Spc. Kristina Truluck/Released)

This photo is what inspired me to start my series of photos based on The Other Side of the War. There's so
much more that I wanted to write, but the previous sentence sums it up so much better than a wall of text.
Take a moment out of your day to chat with a stranger - you never know how much of an impact you could make.
