    Picture 41 is my unit’s main mission here in Iraq and we are getting a ton of stuff out of here! That stuff will only be in Baghdad for a week, until it is moved out, and replaced again. This has been happening for the better part of a year.

      Yea that one is terrible :( I don’t really agree with pictures like that being taken unless consent was given. That is a pretty private and heart wrenching moment for the family that I doubt they would be happy sharing with the entire world.

  3. Man, the comments on that post run the gamut from commendable to positively idiotic. Still, a terrific set.

    And, yes, #30 broke my heart, as well. I am so blessed to an American, and I take so much for granted that it makes me sick thinking about it.
