Hey everyone, I have been away for a while and have started posting more photos from my last deployment. Well I will be deploying again come October and hopefully I can get all my photos from the last deployment up before I leave again. Also I have a friend that is trying to win a contest where he will receive free rent for a year! He could really use our help! Heres the link please help him out and vote for his video "Super Star Roommate!"… Take care all!

Gotta love your gallery. They say a picture is worth a thousand words...

Whoever said that obviously hasn't seen images of US Troops. =)

Hope you make it home for Christmas but if if you don't have a good one where ever you are!

Semper Fi , more pix of gun bunnies and mud marines! OOOORAH

Yup, I have been deployed attached to an artillery battalion. So I have a lot of shots of them at the gunline and quite a few of us on patrols. I never expected to go on as many patrols as I have with an artillery battalion! But I guess they have to fill the role of provisional infantry as well. More photos will be uploaded when I have time. I have hundreds of shots that I plan on uploading when time permits.

Spent most of my last hitch with a 175mm SP battery(ancient times, right after slingshots and short swords!)as a FDC Chief.

Keep your head down and remember that one more round is cheap insurance! Make it home safe!!
