Former combat photographer and Newhouse grad Stacy Pearsall spoke about her experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan.

After combat photographer Stacy Pearsall was discharged as disabled from the Air Force at age 28, she didn't know what to do with her life. But she knew one thing: "Being disabled did not mean I was unable."

Staff Sgt. Pearsall, who was the first woman to win the National Press Photographers Association's military photographer of the year, graduated in 2004 from Newhouse School's Military Photojournalism Program. She spoke Thursday night before a standing room only crowd.
