I think I know what you mean but for clarification, when you say, "because they have to make money" you are not talking about the soldiers and marines who put themselves in harms way are you? Those people, the soldiers and marines, are grossly underpaid to do the job they have to do.

It is not my intention to mix the status of the troops with the status of the freelance photographers. Most of the war photographers are close to the status of the "independent contractors" highly motivated to deliver products expected by the photo editors.
Some of them become the risk addicts.
