Publisher Comments:

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.

For 24 consecutive hours, this prize-winning team of civilian and military photographers — working with the cooperation and support of the Department of Defense — chronicled daily life in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.

The resulting book of photographs documents the lives of elite units and freshly minted recruits; of cadets, generals, fire-fighters, 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. They are your sons, daughters, spouses, neighbors, and friends.

Together these photographs provide an inspiring visual reminder of the routine and heroic operations, the sacrifices and dedication, that are necessary to defend America's freedoms 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Synopsis:

This extraordinary book of photography chronicles one day in the life of America's armed forces at 125 locations throughout the world, producing a portrait in indelible images and eloquent words of the men and women who wear the military uniforms of this country. 250+ full color & b&w photos.

Synopsis:

An extraordinary book of photography chronicling one day in the life of America's armed forces at 125 locations around the world.

With the renewed interest and admiration for the men and women in America's armed services, here comes the most timely book in the successful Day in the Life series.

On October 22, at 00:01 hours, 125 of the world's leading photojournalists were on location across the globe to launch an unprecedented mission. For 24 hours, this team documented the lives of elite units and freshly minted recruits; of cadets, generals, chaplains, medics, and MPs; of personnel at desloate outposts, on strategic bases, and in the cockpits of fighter planes.

They have produced a portrait in indelible images and eloquent words of the men and women who wear the military uniforms of our country — a grand, poignant, dramatic, and deeply human portrait.
