Hi Aaron, I really like the light in the first image, especially the way the suppressor is lit around the leading edge. Nice series.:)
What's the story on #4? Stress?

(This is from the top of my HMMV as we are driving along in Iraq xD I know this one shouldn't be in this category!! spare me! )

Actually, that's a cool perspective. ;)

Around here the word "casualty" is usually referred as a soldier being hurt physically. However, what about mentally/emotionally? The title of this photo that I have on my deviantart is called "Type II Casualty"


I'm speaking from my perspective being in my company. I really don't agree with it at all xD

I personally think any problem dealing with the soldier being unable to perform to his/her duties at 100% should be considered a casualty.

You make some very good points Aaron. Disabilities are not always visible. :(

#2 and #4 FTW! Is that a SAW?
I'd definitely be up for seeing more of these.
Is your gear all banged up like some of the Viet-Nam PJ's gear?
