Matthew Callahan

(From io9) Matthew Callahan joined the US Marine Corps six years ago, where he now serves as a combat correspondent. Recently, he’s been working on a photography project called Galactic Warfighters, showing off the wars in Star Wars.

Callahan noted that his experience in the military has given the project some credibility to how he’s told these small stories: “The vignettes I write about these photographs reflect a myriad of experiences and hardships real men and women I’ve known in the service have encountered before, no matter how big or small.”
