Re: Catch ya on the flip side

Everyone says it, and I'm gonna repeat it: Be safe, come home, thanks!

When you get situated, post an addy, how long it takes for packages to get through, what shipping services are available there. I need to know how much dry ice to pack your snowballs in. LOL

I was in for 5 years. It is easy when no body is shooting. You have a long life in front of you, don't let your guard down. Thank you for protecting my right to free speech! ha ha Come home safe.

Re: Catch ya on the flip side

mail over here takes between 1 and 2 weeks to get here, depending on the mail gods. sometimes less, sometimes more, depending on if they shine favorably or not.

Re: Catch ya on the flip side

Some quick pics. I blew one of my rear shocks going over little "speed bumps" in a field looking for a High Value Target out in the middle of nowhere. Makes me miss my XJ.... sigh.......


2 of the 3 500lb bombs dropped by the F-16 that crashed in Iraq. I helped pick up the wreckage and search for the pilot.


Pulling security early morning right before we rolled out to search again.


Air Medivac coming in for a practice run.

Hope you all are doin great!

Seth

Re: Catch ya on the flip side

So....... I take it that first pic is of your squad having to drag those bombs away from the crash site? That looks like absolutely no fun at all. Were they still live at the time or were they rendered safe?

I think that unexploded ordinance should find it's way to John Kerry's front door....

Thanks for your dedicated service brutha - keep your head down and shoot at all towel wrapped ones that pop up.

They're still live, guaranteed. The right one looks like the tail fuze has been removed, but that certainly looks like a broken fuze in the left one. There's no telling from this angle what they have in the nose wells - we commonly used a solid plug or a 'TDD' Target Detecting Device that would send a detonation signal to the rear fuze while the bomb was still above the sand. That maximizes the explosive effect. If they were guided in any way though (laser, GPS, etc) then it likely was a guidance package up front and a fuze in the rear....
