Best online story so far about soldiers home from Iraq

If you read this blog regularly, you know I have a problem with long multimedia segments. It’s my problem — I have no attention span. Well, here’s a switch: When the War Comes Home, a purpose-built photo slideshow with audio, is almost 7 minutes long. Aiyeee! (I screamed silently when it had finally finished loading and the Start Slideshow button appeared.)

I’m recommending that you close the door, sit down, and settle in to watch this right now. It’s exceptional. Great content, awesome photo editing, and one of the best audio tracks I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. The intermingling of multiple voices (without ever becoming unintelligible) reaches the heights of art, and yet still perfectly serves the story.

Producer and audio editor: Alexandra Garcia. Photographer and audio gathering: Andrea Bruce. Photo editing: Alexandra Garcia and Tom Kennedy. Text editor: Tanya N. Ballard. Design: Nelson Hsu. Kudos to all.
