Two reporters talk with Marcia Franklin about their month-long trip to Iraq. Roger Phillips, outdoor reporter for the Idaho Statesman, and Kim Hughes, the photo editor for the Idaho Statesman, share their experiences and photos.
Hughes and Phillips spent a month with the Alpha and Bravo Companies of the 116th Brigade Combat Team of the Army National Guard. About 1700 Idahoans are serving in Iraq with the 116th, stationed in northern Iraq. During their visit, the two reporters filed numerous stories and took over 7,000 photos.
