Iraq Vet Writes Poetry About War


Iraq Veteran Brian Turner has written two anthologies of poetry about his experiences in the Iraq War.

A traveling photography and poetry exhibit chronicling the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is on display at the University of Nevada, Reno's Knowledge Center through May 4th. The nationally touring exhibit, which began at Carson City's Western Nevada College, is called "Always Lost: A Meditation on War."

It includes photos from the wars, photos of every American Soldier lost since September 11th, 2001, and poetry about the conflicts.

One of the poets, Iraq Veteran Brian Turner, shares some of his poetry tonight Tuesday, March 13, at 6 p.m. at UNR's Knowledge Center.

KUNR's Michael Hagerty has more.
