Even though they were not granted citizenship until 1924, Native Americans have served in all of America's wars. In 2006, Clevenger, himself of Osage descent, began a three-year project following Native American soldiers into war in Iraq and back home again. He was embedded with Native American military in Iraq in 2007 and 2009, shooting candid moments of the soldiers at war and conducting interviews in a combat zone.
This book is an eloquent tribute to the Native American warriors, men and women, who have served in all of America's wars.
