No, I hit my EAS at the end of '03. Sometimes I really miss it.

Awesome pictures and thread here are a few of mine. I am at work so don't have much time to do this, so I am just attaching 5 that I didn't see well represented earlier. a weapon, 5 star accomadations, afganistan from the air in the mountains, Bagram airfield, and Kyrgyzstan barracks.

I may get a crazy hair and attach more at a later time, thanks for all the pictures and supportive comments to those who served JF.

its funny how all the parks look the same there. downtown kandahar has a park almost the same as in your picture. i tried to go in the ferris wheel but my sgt thought i'd get shot for sure.

i was based in the city so i never got to go see KAF. but we LOVED the apaches, kiowas and even had a warthog back us up. you guys pulled out the stops for us.

thanks guys, from a canadian brother.

I know this is a slightly old thread, but just had a chance to read all 20 pages.

Thanks to 3fifty, bovine, EaglesSJ, ReconBen and I am sure others I have forgotten for all the pictures allowing us but a glimpse of your time serving.

Felt this should get bumped to the top for one reason. As we wind down another year, I hope we remember all the individuals past and present who have served this great nation. Please remember all those who made it home, those who did not and those still serving in the name of freedom. Thank you to each and everyone of you for service. Thank you!

Excellent thread here, one of the more worthwhile in GD.
I appreciate y'all bumping it back up so I finally got a chance to see it. Crawled, rated, thumbs-upped, and supported to the extent of my abilities.
Thanks to everyone who posted pics for giving me a little insight into a world I'd never know otherwise.
3fifty, looks like your premium JF membership had expired. Please accept a fresh year's renewal on me as a small token of my appreciation.
Best regards, you guys are awesome.

If anyone is interested in seeing what combat is like (albeit a rather extreme example), take a look at the movie "Restrepo". It was filmed by an embedded cameraman with a platoon throughout their entire deployment in the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan, touted by many as the "Deadliest Place on Earth". It is worth watching, I know it was hard for me, as a Vet, to watch, but I think it serves a great purpose at showing those who have never been in combat what it's like for those who have.


Thank you to all who have served, I consider you all my Brothers and Sisters.

I really enjoyed the pictures guys. I just started reading "the lone survivor" (about a SEAL operation) and I am getting a whole different perspective on this war. Thanks guys and keep the pics coming if you have more, this is fantastic for those of us sitting behind computers thinking of you guys.
