Tending a Fallen Marine, With Skill, Prayer and Fury
Chivers' editors say he is a man whose mission is to bring his readers to where the news is happening - not just to tell them about it, but to show it to them, with all its implications, both noble and ugly. His narratives have a stunning clarity and honesty.
From 1999 until 2001, Chivers was a metro reporter for the Times, covering crime, law enforcement and the Sept. 11th attacks.
Chivers became a Moscow correspondent in 2004. He has covered war zones in Iraq, the Palestinian territories, Israel, Central Asia and Afghanistan.
Two of his articles from Afghanistan were cited in the award of the Pulitzer Prize for public service in 2002.
Before joining The Times, Chivers worked at The Providence (R.I.) Journal and received the Livingston Award for international reporting.
From 1988 to 1994, Chivers was in the U.S. Marine Corps, serving in a rifle company in the Persian Gulf war and as a company commander during the Los Angeles riots.
