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
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.

Ever seen Winnie the Pooh in Chinese?
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.
