Inside a ICMB Silo
Let's not forget the men who gave up everything so we would have the honor of serving in the modern armed forces;
All those Camp Leatherneck pics remind me of western Iraq...same type of harsh terrain without any green to be seen.
After being driven over thousands of times, the sand becomes fluffy as the fine particles rise to the top with a consistency about 100x as fine as powdered sugar. The dust will literally stay suspended for a couple minutes after you disturb it...I can remember choking on the stuff everrytime I'd bring my Humvee to the fuel point.
This one brings back memories. Neither the base paper or the Oceanside paper ran a pic of me with the trophy. SSGT Adams on this on who finished 2nd and Watson in the Oceanside paper who finished like 8th. That's all right I'll take the championship.
Watching the Sea and Sky
The sole Japanese submarine attack on the U.S. mainland was the 1942 shelling of an oil field in Ellwood, California. West Coast patrols, like this one in 1943 at a Los Angeles beach, kept up the vigil.
More WWII Home Front Pics.
American B-52 Drops Bombs on Vietcong
A B-52 drops bombs in 1968. During the 34 months of Rolling Thunder, the U.S. dropped 864,000 tons of bombs on North Vietnam. In the entire Pacific theater of World War II, it dropped 503,000.
WWII: Hiroshima [PICS] view!
Great pic CJIS, its really interesting to see pics of the homeland being defended during WWII. I have never seen photos like this. I have only seen photos of overseas fighting etc, but never anything like this, thanks!
That SF K9 looks like it is Satan's personal dog.
Time for work...
DO NOT move you leg, no matter how sore it is. He WILL see it!!

Lets not forget Pat Tillman!
This one for all the Marines on the site...
BTW: Great book!!
Respectfully everyone's opinion is different, but Pat Tilman is a Hero. To give up a dream that many have and join a team that many choose not to speaks volumes of him...
I have never heard any different, but I also value every single Soldier the same as I do Tillman, to me they all deserve the respect he gets.
I hear ya 7 and ALL Veterans deserve a "thank you"
Sadly...I have had encounters where I have found myself arguing for the sake of Tillman's story, even with fellow soldiers.
The thing that stands out most to me about Pat Tillman: He believed in what he was doing and left the money and fame behind (unfounded.) He was an Unselfish celebrity and that is not common in our world today!
I have his book and when I got it in the mail my little girl said to me: "Daddy, who is that?" "I told her he is one of the hundreds of thousands of heroes we are fortunate to have had protect us but he is just a bit different in his sacrifice!" I will explain to her one day what sacrifice means as well as unselfish....
This is a cousin of mine
