  • Miss HS

    I love these posts. Something so uplifting about them.
    RIP Swedish soldier though.

    • Rick

      I hate playing the emotion card but (this is just my opinion) if we can put politics aside, these are humans away from home…and they're doing a tough job. Thank you for coming to the site.

    Thank You to all the men and women who serve for their country. It brings a tear to my eye every time I see a soldier in uniform, knowing that they are keeping us safe and free. Thank You and God Bless every one of them!

  • J.exe

    With brothers and sisters overseas I have nothing but respect and give nothing but thanks to all of you. Pics like these make it all worth while.

    #36 That's a lot of seamen! Cue the "that's what she said replies"

  • CDR B.

    #27…now THAT'S a sand table!

    • Rick

      sorry, not a strong photo. I was trying to give France a shout. I know I have a bad habit of making certain white flag jokes, but the reality is: there are French men and women in Afghanistan this Christmas.

        I could be wrong, but it looks less like a humanitarian effort than it does a nice recreation of a strike zone. One probably involving both infantry and air… but maybe I play too many video games.

    #5 is just thinking seriously bitch

  • boooger

    #26 and #32 This is the stuff the media needs to show! Real men and women with good hearts trying to do good for people they don't even know and real deaths. Don't hide the good and for god's sake don't hide the deaths! Our soldiers and our allies soldiers deserve so much more respect than they are getting!

  • Mike

    #29 dont ask dont tell anyone lol

  • Adam

    This almost made me forget that these guys are at war not a humanitarian mission. Hmm. Thanks guys for doing your jobs, listening to assholes in washington. Come home.

  • Luckmann

    How about a big fuck you to the occupants this christmas?

    • fuzzybeard2016

      No. That would show meaness of the heart. How about a "Please take the day off, OK?" instead.

  • mith

    Simper Fi and Gods Speed to all of you.

  • mllk

    I don’t understand the solider love. These kids CHOOSE to join, they aren’t drafted and stolen from their families. They know what they get into.

    • obx

      That they choose to go doesn't mean they know what they're getting themselves into.

      If you go on an adventure to a far away country, you can prepare yourself by learning a about the language, culture, customs etc… but there is NOTHING that can prepare you for the things that you're about to experience. And I'm just talking about an unplanned vacation.

      The feeling of suddenly being confronted with a reality you were unaware of is not something that you can imagine if you haven't experienced it. I'm sure this feeling is a lot more intense for a young soldier in a war. Believe me, watching discovery channel doesn't teach you anything about the real world outside your living room.

      You may not like what they're doing or who they're representing, but they deserve our sympathy and respect none the less.

        The paragon of undesrtanding these issues is right here!

  • ThatJeff

    So why does the Army have the American flag on backwards? Yeah, I know it's because "well, if the flag was moving forward, the wind would blow the flag back, so the stripes would be on the left side…." yada, yada, yada, but my question is, why doesn't the armed services put the flag patch on the left arm instead?
