Default Let's Build: a Military Journalist

Probably 10 years ago or so, one of the original PCs in a Pirates of the Vistula PbP campaign that I had just started running was a US army combat journalist. His player quit the game after another player summarily executed a ZOMO prisoner, and his PC returned to Krakow to find more morally-aligned traveling companions. I was disappointed that I didn't get a chance to witness a military journalist PC in action over the long-term.
Anyway, today, I stumbled across this crazy story:


And it got me thinking about military journalist character builds. It doesn't have to be Army (the Marines have a combat journalist MOS- ergo, "Joker" from Full Metal Jacket), or even US-centric, but I thought it might be a fun thought experiment to build an military photographer PC using each of the rule T2k sets.

What skills would an Army Photographer have? How would you equip him or her?

We don't have to focus just on photographers- it can be any sort of military journalist.

Feel free to post your builds here, as well as any other articles, thoughts, stories, encounter ideas, etc. focusing on military journalists in combat.
