Afghanistan was his first trip back to war since leaving Iraq in June 2006 after nearly two years. His military awards include the Bronze Star Medal and NATO Medal; his civilian awards include significant contributor to an Edward R.

Bill's work has been published in the Washington Post, Boston Globe, Newsweek magazine, Army Times, the Oregonian newspaper, Columbia Journalism Review, The New Republic magazine, NPR.org and digitaljournalist.org. He opened a 40-print solo exhibition of his Afghan work titled "Abu in Bermel: Faces of Battle" in February 2010 at St. Vincent College in Latrobe, Pa. That exhibition is moving to Point Park University in Pittsburgh, Pa., in April 2010. He has also been in group shows at Glen Echo Photo Works in Glen Echo, Md., and Montgomery College in Rockville, Md.
