Pictures From the 'Stan

Jake sent us some pictures and I asked him if I could post them, so here they are. Jake has also said he has received many packages from friends known and unknown and he and the platoon are grateful.

The competition- set up 2 sets of six Coke cans a couple hundred yards out. Each member of each six man team gets one 7.62 round. Then, 10 pushups at the start, a 100 yard sprint to the gun, 20 jumping jacks, get down, load your round, get your breathing and heart under control, shoot a can, run back and tag the next guy. Team Revolution won.

Cytosport was kind enough to send Jake's team two boxes of protein for free...so props to them.

This is a .50 Caliber semi-automatic rifle that weighs a bunch.

Badger Mom likes her Jakey's hair longer!
