a day at the office for the 1/26 infantry.

I have nothing interesting going on today, so here’s an amazing series of photographs for you to look at instead.  They were taken by Getty Images photographer John Moore, in the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan.

Amazing, breathtaking, and humbling all at the same time.

    Note that picture 14 has the US Marine on the right using a non-standard weapon.

    Thank you all for serving.
    I think these pictures show a lot of bravery. The outpost is in some of the worst areas for our troops.

    What amazes me the most are the action shots. I’ll note that I’ll go to a wedding with a camera slung under my arm and take like 3 shots, because I don’t like seeing things through a viewfinder rather than my naked eye.

    When I’m alone in the woods, I snap like a bandit tho.

    Still to be taking incoming fire and reach for a CAMERA!!??!?! That’s something you’ll NEVER see me doing.
