Our reporting has changed military law and sparked federal investigations into sexual exploitation across the Defense Department. Our exclusive investigation into Marines United was covered by nearly every major global news outlet.
Bridging the Military-Civilian Divide
The War Horse is the only military-focused newsroom to partner publication with the Center for Investigative Reporting and Vanity Fair. Our stories ensure that those who are most affected by war continue to have a prominent voice in the national conversation.
Our writing seminars bring together world class journalists, authors, agents, and publishers with veterans and military family members for off-the-record Q&A. Our seminars are where the best writers of today pay it forward to the most promising military writers of tomorrow.
In March 2018, The War Horse was featured by Columbia Journalism Review for our team’s work addressing the decline in military coverage at for-profit and non-profit media organizations.
