Place to share your pictures from training, active duty, LEO and/or Military.

Comments welcome.

Start with a few of my favorites.

Funny story about third picture there.

We were on a fairly long recon.

All of a sudden the greenhouse above me explodes. There is just this big BANG and then I am showered in glass and blood.



I look down and for an instant I think "oh SHIT!" and start brushing the blood away, thinking I am done.

The thumbs up was the "im not dead"

Stupid bird committed suicide.

Ah, memories.

Spent a day in Kuwait welding up some Mad-Max armor on the company's truck. It was the only vehicle manned by company personnel that drove all the way to Kirkuk. I got to take a bird. My brother rode up in it with his boss, both were quite grateful.

These go out to Dave. Good friend, resting now eternally. He knows the meaning of the poem:

I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, nor eer eagle flew –
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high, untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

God bless you, Dave. We all miss you, and you sleep now with Angels.

Man that looks so familiar.

Good pic of the supermosque! We called that thing "moonbase 5". I even recognize that bend.

Sheesh... What a place.
