Teru Kuwayama, whose Basetrack project uses social media to tell the stories of the day-to-day experiences of Marines in southern Afghanistan, says he’s mystified by the decision and his attempts to reach military officials have gone unanswered. Basetrack was awarded a $202,000 Knight News Challenge grant last spring. || Justin Ellis: "The news is a surprise to say the least: Kuwayama has spent extensive time embedded with Marines."
