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...

Wow! Your pictures are very powerful and poignant. I think its already been said, but its too bad our news media wont display pics of a similar nature.

Keep 'em coming and, though it may be cliche at this point, thanks for your service.

Those pictures are amazing. My brother is in Baghdad right now and these give me a little glimpse into his world for the next 12 months.

Thank you.

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.

I think everybody takes the same exact pictures during the Suez transit. I know I've got the same ones somewhere around here...

Glad you made it home well, but jeez! Hurry up and post more of those pictures! 4 years is way too freaking long!

Iraqi crapper


Our crappers in Kuwait. I would have killed to have these once we crossed into Iraq!


Instead we tried this. It didnt last long.


These type of things were EVERYWHERE.




Lizards were common and fun to play with.

This guy was traveling to work. He was afraid the Americans would think he was a terrorist so he strapped the white flag to his bike.

We found these Al-Samoud Scuds. They are classified as a weapon of mass destruction. But hey, Iraq didnt have any of those... right?



Then we blew them up.




We found some more later on. We found quite a few of these while I was there.

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.
