About | Brian Mockenhaupt


I’m a contributing editor at Outside magazine, the nonfiction editor at the Journal of Military Experiencea, and a former Knight-Wallace journalism fellow at the University of Michigan. I write regularly for The Atlantic, and my work has appeared in EsquirePacific Standard, BackpackerThe New York Times Magazine and Chicago. I served two tours in Iraq as an infantryman with the 10th Mountain Division, and since leaving the U.S. Army in 2005, I’ve written extensively on military and veteran affairs, reporting from Afghanistan and Iraq, hometowns and hospitals, and even Mt. Kilimanjaro, which I climbed with a former soldier blinded by a bomb in Baghdad. Prior to joining the Army, I worked as a newspaper reporter in the United States and in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, at The Cambodia Daily, an English-language newspaper, and as a contributing reporter for the Far Eastern Economic Review, reporting from Cambodia, Burma and South Korea.

Thank you for visiting and looking through some of the stories I’ve written.
