USA. New York City. 1978. A known drug dealer shows the knife wounds he had received in pursuit of his street trading. In this district the streets are so dangerous that the police officer carries two guns and a switch-blade knife. The small opera glasses are used to watch drug dealers from a distance.
As the US military fights to gain stability in Iraq, doctors, nurses, and medics are working on the front lines to keep the casualties down. Thomas Dworzak was embedded with the 44th, 50th and 115th Medical Companies in Iraq.
