After three deployments to Afghanistan, Kat Argo packed her belongings into a carry-on bag and bought a one-way ticket to Europe with the intention of leisurely backpacking. By August, she had a Press Pass from the self-proclaimed, breakaway Donetsk People's Republic (DNR) in eastern Ukraine and was writing about the results of Ukrainian artillery on the civilian population. She withdrew from the region after witnessing the DNR's counter-Ukrainian Independence Day celebration, which involved soldiers marching of captured Ukrainian soldiers at bayonet-point.
She continues to travel, covering the civilian populations that are stuck in the middle of world conflicts.
