not to change the subject or anything, but I wish I had the money and room to start collecting McFarlane's Military action figures... I don't know why, I've become rather fascinated with the military lately... They don't cost much per figure... but I'd probably start collecting all of them

A CV-22 Osprey from the 8th Special Operation Squadron, and an MH-53 Pave Low from the 20th Special Operation Squadron, fly over the coastline near Hurlburt Field, Fla., Aug. 20, 2008. The MH-53 will officially retire October 2008 and the CV-22 will be the primary workhorse to complete the Air Force Special Operations Command helicopter missions.

GORI, Georgia (Aug. 25, 2008) A Russian theater ballistic missile lies largely intact in the master bedroom of a home in Gori. Residents of the embattled city have begun to return and have commenced the work of cleaning up their city following the recent conflict between Russia and Georgia. The Department of Defense deployment is part of a larger United States response to the government of Georgia request for humanitarian assistance. This effort is being coordinated by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development.

That is one bad ass pic. Practice makes perfect. And practice is one thing our military does a lot of.

An MH-53 Pave Low flies over the coastline near Hurlburt Field, Fla., Aug. 20. The helicopter, assigned to the 20th Special Operations Squadron, flies long-range missions for infiltration, exfiltration and resupply of special operations forces, and will retire in October.


A U.S. Army soldier uses a flame thrower to engulf a field of reeds and high brush in flames, while working together with Iraqi soldiers in conducting a controlled fire to clear high brush so that an Iraqi outpost nearby has clear visibility of the area, near Tarmiyah, Iraq, Aug. 26, 2008.


Sgt. Joshua Robbins, native of Dickson, Tenn., serving with the 66th Engineers Company, "Sappers," 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, "Warrior," 25th Infantry Division, Multi-National Division-Baghdad, torches an area with a flame thrower in an effort to deny terrorists concealment, and give coalition forces at Joint Security Station Mushada East a clear line of sight along a road, which lies between Mushada and Tarmiyah in the Tarmiyah Qada.

WTF! Just a question dude. Why do you assume the worst, just wondering if anyone had the pic. Didn't think there was anything derogatory in my post to warrant your obscenities.

If it's anyone's business I'm not against the war and respect what every soldier is doing anywhere in the world. Heck I've got a nephew in the Army and a Marine cousin that just finished his 3rd tour in Iraq. Never mind a whole older generation of family members - uncles that served (WW2)...so FUCK you in thinking I'm some SOB looking to slam the US.

Why would I assume the worst? Seriously?

In a thread that celebrates the men, women and equipment of the U.S. Armed Forces through photographs, why would you put up such an imbecilic post?

What is one to think, other than here's another freak with a lame attempt to make a political statement.

If you're so pro military, your post about "Little Bush" and "mission accomplished" sure is a fucked up way of saying it.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Back on topic....the pics here are amazing. God bless the U.S. Armed forces one and all.
