Me holding Wiley in his sleeping bag. He's probably the biggest jokester, but also one of the smallest guys in the platoon.

The WARHAWK. Sorry, no pictures are known to have survived of the trash 'stache.

The infamous "Alcatraz Bridge", complete with 7 strands of C-wire. Mom, this thing almost drowned me. Not pictured- The two up-armored gun trucks with 8 Marines that for some reason were required to be posted on this 24 hours a day.

Ready to go out on an insurgent hunt.

This is my squad "Golf-3-Bravo", ready for a fight.

The mandatory "holding your gun on top of a turret because you think you're a war hero" pose that every Marine has gotten since WWII.

Let me say again how much I love going to Camp Fallujah for flushing toilets.

With Hunt (RIP your hand buddy) on the C130 about to make the flight from Kuwait to Fallujah.

This is what a lot of our AO looks like, rudimentary canals (full of the infamous shit water) and poor farmland.
