Ash Kyrie spent 18 months serving the USA as a Wisconsin National Guardsperson sent to Iraq, and it changed him. The road home to fullness includes time with other vets, support from family & community, and a long peace march in Japan, plus lots of subsequent Japanese connections. And art that helps bridge the gap from soldier to civilian, and war zone to back home.

Watch a few videos, including a slideshow with narrative of Japanese peaceworkers Ash has met, and a walk-through of several of Ash's art projects related to understanding war, and a video about Ash's OSU MFA Thesis exhibition.
