Larry Holdaway is an artist and photographer who created this haunting, nearly recognizable face by combining the available portraits of every American soldier killed in Iraq from March 2003 to September 2004. 

As Larry writes: “This is the face of America’s sacrifice, the face of more than a thousand families’ pain.  Do you recognize it?”
