"Enjoy Your Veterans" Day

Today is the day we celebrate all those 19-year-old borderline alcoholics with automatic weapons. Enjoy them. Don't thank them...they don't take praise or the spotlight well. But definitely appreciate them. Buy them a beer at the bar. Or take one out back behind the bar and let them get to second base. Hell, hire one! Trust me, they will work harder and longer for you than some trust-fund baby looking for direction... 
Keep it real, boys!

  4. good stuff Jay - quick question though - what unit was that from? Those are HK rifles - not standard issue for American forces.

    And when you put it the terms of 'borderline alcoholic with automatic weapons' - it sounds like they're all John MacLean or a modern Rooster Cogburn :)

  5. A Co. 2/505 PIR (82nd Airborne Div.)embedded w/314 Fallschirmjägers...hence the HKs. Good eye! (me at far left)

  6. Nice. You kinda remind me of Kevin Spacey from The Men Who Stare at Goats in that photo. Only more badass.
