Graffiti Of War

U.S. forces are scheduled to depart Iraq in December. But on the giant concrete barriers that still ring the constellations of bases around the country, their artistic footprint will remain.

Too bad those are so big and heavy.  I’m sure a lot of money could be raised by selling those for charity back in the U.S.

Dear Mike,

I am the creator and director of operations for the Graffiti of War Project and I wanted to thank you for reposting the article at We have been working on this project almost two years now and recently returned from our expedition to Kuwait and Iraq where we captured thousands of images, interviewed warfighters and civilians and increased awareness about the project to those who could help us ensure the success of the book. In addition, we are working on saving some of them with the help of some US and European corporations working out in theater. I would love to speak to you in more detail about the project, what we have accomplished, whom we are working with and the eventual goals surrounding it all. Feel free to contact me directly at, in the meantime you can visit our website, or on Facebook, where you can view more examples of the art we have collected, whom we are working with and our blog which details our journey over the course of almost two years. We are a partnership of combat veterans, warfighters and family members working to ensure a unique glimpse into the wars, from the perspective of those who lived and those who died. Thank you again for posting the article and I hope to hear from you soon.

Very Respectfully,

Jaeson “Doc” Parsons
Director, Project Ops

Oregon sure is fanatical about their Ducks and Beavers. On a related note…

College color themed AR15’s from an Oregon company:

That is Avenger Company’s art work from CSC Scania.

SSG Ryk,

I actually took that photo on Camp Adder, Tallil, Iraq just a few weeks ago. Perhaps it was moved or there were more than one made. If you have any additional information on this photo or have any of your own, please let us know and send it to or you can post it via our website.
