Photograph by Rick Loomis, Los Angeles Times

I want to bring your attention to an excellent series in the Los Angeles Times on how wounded soldiers' lives are being saved and how their lives are changed forever after. The photos are more graphic than has been typical of coverage of this war, and if you still get an actual newspaper delivered to your door, like I do, they've placed fairly disturbing images prominently on the front page (the LAT has been more willing to publish graphic war photographs and to examine how the press and media have dealt with such images than most mainstream media outlets).

Whether you're for the war or against it, this is what war does.

Parts one, two and three, along with additional web-only features, can be found here.
