World Soldiers

A soldier in historical uniform the Sastreria Militar, Buenos Aires, Argentina

In an increasingly militarized world, travelers are seeing soldiers in every corner of the globe. As a travel writer and photographer with experience in over 75 countries, I am frequently in close contact with members of the military. I have created this website to bring a human face to the men and women the world over in uniform. I hope that this website serves to bring you closer to the men and women putting their lives on the line sometimes in the name of peace and security, and at other times for the insane desires of radical politicians who have no concern for those whom they send into danger for their selfish whims.
