    Operation Niagra, right? My dad was there.

    Thanks for serving and thanks for sharing the pic. That's some awesome firepower.

    So, uh, goawayfarm...you notice our pictures are a little bit more, uhm, picturesque than USMCJ and C9's?

    In retrospect, no matter the amount of complaining we did, I had a pretty easy time of it. 14 months in a warzone, and I never even bothered to write a will. Our technology has came a long way, and for those on the ground, I have nothing but respect.

    Thanks to everybody who has posted pictures, and may our thoughts and prayers go out to those who served and to those who didn't make it back.

    Have a great Memorial Day weekend and keep the pictures coming.

    And for some other pictures and a great song, please check out http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...dier-iraq.html

    God Bless!

    Nice pics. Hard for me to take photo's from a submarine while underwater :>
    I do have some pics from a port call to Naples and a visit to Rome that I could scan in, but why bother? The sistine chapel was undergoing restoration at the time, so all the photo's have scaffolding in them.

    Honestly, that's something I would really like to see. I was only on West Pac's so I didn't get a chance to see Europe. The Sistine Chapel, the Louvre, and Stone Henge are on my short list of things to see before I die. The Vietnam Memorial Wall is another.

    If anybody has some first hand pictures of The Wall, it would make a great addition to this thread.

    The view from my "tent' in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, 2003-2004.



    Morale trip to Havasu Falls, AZ last year.

    Both were extremely fun. =)

    g2parrot, that's a pretty nice view from a 'tent'.

    I know some of the other members have a ton of memorable experiences, so if you guys have some pics, I know we, as a forum, would love to see them.

    For those that have contributed to this, I appreciate it. Some of those pictures are truly 'awe' inspiring.
