A group of men, some veterans and some security officers, banded together to guard the U.S.-Mexico border.
The group, known as the Arizona Border Recon, was documented by photographer Johnny Milano for his In The Hills of Pima project.
The project documented the men as they guarded the border, watched for immigrants, and prevented criminals from entering the country. They use Google Earth to pinpoint potential meeting points for migrants.
Milano spent four days with the group, many of whom are veterans.
“The driving force for many of these men is a continuation of the oath they took in the military,” Milano said. “The defense of their country and family seems to be first and foremost.”
