My primary was Network Admin. I also served as a forward scout riding a KLR-650 for a force recon unit. As well as a few other billets...
I was in the Marine Corps, no corpsmen for me.
Ive been home for nearly four years now. Maybe its taken me four years to go through these photos for a reason...
Those are some awesome pictures...thanks! And thanks a million for your service. I can't imagine what it's like looking at those pictures after being over there.
A good buddy of mine comes home in a couple weeks after his 2nd tour over there.
The picture that stands out to me is the one with the WTC and Saddam paintings in the same room. Why was there so much controversy about there being a connection between the two? He obviously didn't have a problem with it...
Hang in there Boreal, try to stay away from the news. I got out of the unit a few years before they left. I had a family and bigger resonsibilities when they left, but it honestly killed me in the inside to watch the news. My unit was a strike force unit in Baghdad and later Fallujah. I trainded many of the guys that left in my place, they were like brothers to me. In fact they were closer to me than family. Your imagination can lead to your demise. My unit came home dinged up but they all came home. I did my best to stay away from the news and had alot of late night talks w/ the guys. My boys are slotted for Afghanistan in a year, I pray they don't have to go. They have been deployed alot since my ETS. I will say a prayer for your brother, it brought all my buds back home.

Iiiiiinteresting. Funny that those didn't get much publicity. Or any. Did anyone else hear about those?
In one short simple anwser. Yes.
I think that it depends on who you are asking as to what classifies as "Weapon of Mass Destruction" though.
I think these fall under the technical term of WMD for the U.N. I dont remeber exactly but I think that anything that can travel over 150km with a warhead is considered WMD. These can travel something like 180km. I think.
Then again Im not a weapons expert; nor am I an expert on laws of the U.N.
