    Hi Chris, please check out my blog.
    There are articles about Exit wounds on the right side of the blog.
    I’m working on a book and a traveling exhibit about soldiers’ stories. I’ve photographed and interviewed Allen Huck. I just found your interview that you did with him. My I excerpt from your blog about him? I can credit you.
