Make yourself comfortable

Pen and fury illus 1During the war in Iraq and subsequent occupation, Kuwait’s Ali Al Salem Base was a transit point for thousands of US soldiers. On these latrine walls, soldiers have the space to express themselves freely. They criticize army policy (like an unpopular 2007 decision to enforce re-enlistment), write philosophy, and let themselves go. Everything is here, written with pen and fury.
