Gravediggers Photo Essay (1)

I'm a giver. Thus, I can't limit my e-war journal to just the literate.

From top to bottom:
1) Sunset in Mesopotamia. A little birdie told me sunsets are profound and emotionally-stirring.
2) SFC Big Country (left) and LT G chillax at a local Sheik's house.
3) SSG Boondock (left) and SSG Bulldog smokin' and jokin.'
4) Enthralled by the mandatory videos put out by the Department of the Army.
5) PV2 Van Wilder helps PV2 Das Boot put on his gear.

Whats with all the tats on SSG Bulldog? I don't think you would ever have seen the like on an E6 20 years ago. But that was a different age, and a different Army, I guess.

I can see that some things haven't changed though. Nice haircuts.

SFC Big country looks too young. Hell, you look too young, LT.

Stay safe.

Hey LT, We need a little detail on the weaponry...

I recognize the M4s but the accessories are hard to pinpoint.

Please tell SFC Big Country, SSG Boondock, SSG Bulldog, PV2 Van Wilder and PV2 Das Boot and all of the men in the group picture what handsome young men they are!

"And Shepherds we shall be

For thee, my Lord, for thee.

Power hath descended forth from Thy hand

Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.

So we shall flow a river forth to Thee

And teeming with souls shall it ever be.

In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti."

"And when I vest my flashing sword And my hand takes hold in judgement I will take vengeance upon mine enemies And I will repay those who hase me O Lord, raise me to Thy right hand And count me amoung Thy saints ."

"Whosoever shed last blood. By man shall his blood be shed. For immunity of god make he the man. Destroy all that which is evil. So that which is good may flourish. And I shall count thee amoung my favoured sheep. And you shall have the protection of all the angels in heaven."

"Never shall innocent blood be shed. Yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of god. "

-Bitchin' tats, SSG Buldog

My apologies to SSG Boondock. Again, bitchin' ink.

I'll catch you on the flip side.
