Author Sebastian Junger and photographer Tim Hetherington (not in photo) discussed their collaboration on the book "War" and documentary "Restrepo" during the second Comm's Reading Club meeting of the semester. More than 250 cadets and 40 mentors came to Eisenhower Hall Nov. 29. Over the course of 15 months, they made five trips to the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan to embed with the 2nd Platoon, Company B of the 173rd Airborne Brigade. Through words and photos, they captured some universal truths about combat, fear, love and war through the lives of paratroopers occupying the remote outpost in Afghanistan.
