In 2010, while embedded with the First Battalion, Eighth Marines in southern Afghanistan, a group of photojournalists started a revolutionary online project called Basetrack. Connecting battalion members with their families and others around the globe, the web platform became an indispensable tool of citizen journalism, documenting a range of perspectives on the emotional tolls of war.

Educators and students alike are afforded a unique look at America’s longest war in this multimedia work—a rare blend of photojournalism and theater that tells Marines’ personal stories through stunning images and video footage from the Basetrack archives.
