A multimedia exhibit at the Bronx Documentary Center tells the story of the invasion of Iraq from three different perspectives — a solider fighting from the frontline and two reporters writing and photographing everything they witnessed.
The solider, Marine Lt. Timothy McLaughlin, was at the Pentagon on 9/11, commanded a tank during the Iraq invasion and later had his personal American flag draped over the statute of Saddam Hussein when the Marines entered Baghdad. That flag will be on display for part of the exhibit.
The project includes pages of McLaughlin's diary, photographs by Gary Knight and text by Peter Maass, as well as a video installation.
The exhibit at the the Bronx Documentary Center at 614 Courtlandt Ave. is free and open each Thursday and Friday, from 4 to 7 p.m. and Saturday to Sunday, from 1 to 5p.m.
