A forgotten photographic style

In the distant past, war photographers would take pictures of troops going about their daily routine, having a laugh, or interacting with civilians. Magazines like Life would carry dozens of them every week. They would remind the people back home of the sacrifices soldiers made, and help them appreciate the difficulties they faced. Today of course, such humanizing photos would be considered propaganda and no media outlet will have anything to do with them. But it's nice that someone gathered together a few for a moving slideshow so we can see the types of photos magazines might run if they actually wanted the US to win in Iraq.
