A Day In The Life Of The United States Armed Forces : On October 22, 2002, more than 125 of the world's finest photographers set out on a unique global mission. Their instructions were simple: look beyond the daily news headlines, dig beneath the breaking stories, and capture what life is like on an ordinary day for the men and women of the United States Armed Forces around the world. The resulting book of photographs documents the lives of elite units and freshly minted recruits; of cadets, generals, firefighters, medics, and MPs; of soldiers at desolate outposts and on strategic bases. It illustrates life in the cockpit of a fighter, on a Trident submarine, in an underground missile silo, and at computer terminals in a war room. It shows personnel patrolling borders, jungles, mountains, and harbors; training for special operations; and fighting terrorism. It is a timeless portrait - in indelible images and eloquent words - of the men and women who wear the uniforms of the American military.
