    #3 Why not fullscreen?

    When you're in the military you can be there for the conception or the birth. I guess you were there for the birth.
    Keep calm and get home safe.

        This joke is simple. It implies that when you're in the military you will be away a lot. So you can chose to either be there for the conception of your child or the birth but you can't be at both.

        It's a bad military joke. Same as "if the military wanted you to have a family they would have issued you one".

        • Smitty

          Been in for 20, never heard that. Never heard the second one either. Heard a similar one about wives… but not families.

          Jokes like that are to be told BY the military, to others In the military, while IN the military.
          Shut your fucking hole civilian.

  • Leah

    thank god for Sype, eh?

  • wrangler86

    stay safe and get home to love on that little girl! thank you for your service. God bless!!!

  • Irishstephen

    Gorgeous family you have there amigo!! Hurry home safe and sound – we're all behind you!

  • Cropped Rag

    Hmmm just 1 kid? I bet he killed more people then he procreated some.

    • quagmireismysexidol

      Not every person deployed overseas is sent to "kill people" as you put it. How do you know he's not over there helping rebuild schools or hospitals? Next time, you really should think twice before you start posting stupid shit about people who protect this country and our freedom (what's left of it).

      • Irony

        Altho I agree with what youre saying I do have to point out that it is mentioned that hes in the Air Force and Im pretty sure not a lot of theme are involved in rebuilding schools or hospitals. Maybe next time you should read whats posted before unloading on someone.

        • Mediator

          You'd be surprised at what the Air Force, or any of the other branches for that matter, does aside from their normal mission that is perceived by the public.

        • guest

          @ cropped rag…GFY…its men like this that have a job, make money, contribute to society, make a difference for the country…people like you on the other hand crap rag, have 5-6 kids, live off welfare cuz you are lazy as hell, take advantage of all help you can get and then for some reason blame the government for your hard times…

        • JM8705

          @ Cropped Rag and Irony – You are FAR from being right. I was the one that submitted these pictures. I am a communications technician. I work on network infrastructure equipment like computers, routers, and switches. I have never killed anyone. I did not post these pictures to start a political debate. I am just a proud father that wanted to share one of the best moments of my life with people I thought would appreciate it. Hence why I posted them on theBrigade, a military themed website. I cant tell you what to do, and I am here in Afghanistan away from my family so you can keep enjoying that freedom, but I really would appreciate it if you could show some respect. And if you have an issue with the military and what we are doing overseas, I HIGHLY suggest that you avoid theBrigade and any other military-oriented websites.

          @ quagmireismysexidol and everyone else – Thank you for the kind posts. It really does mean a lot. My wife and daughter are doing great and it wont be too much longer before I get to go home to be with them and my 5 year old son.

          • Rick

            thanks again for sending these powerful photos in. As is per usual, those who appreciate freedom the least are the ones complaining the loudest…the quiet ones are busy defending that freedom.

          • Irony

            Im sorry but just where did I say I had an "issue" with the Military? I was simply pointing out to quagmireismysexidol that his analogy was maybe a little off the mark. I never said anything disparaging about you, your family or the military in general. I both admire and appreciate the job that you and others are doing to keep our country safe and help others.

            I said nothing disrespectful at all

            • Rick

              (Irony) I'm pretty sure these comments are meant for "cropped rag"

              • linecook

                Cropped Rag people like you talk about what they believe in. Don't think your being clever by downplaying what he is doing. He actually has the testicles to stand up for what he believes in. That is the difference between self righteous people like you and the people who serve this country.

                When it comes down to it, all you do is speak and about what you believe. While service men/women actually put their beliefs action.

    • Kodos

      fuck you asshole

  • CalAb13

    Cant imagine how hard that must have been….

    Congrats, stay safe and come home soon to your new family!

  • Tillman

    Well done and congrats to all! Hope you are all together very soon!

    Thank you for your service and sacrifices for our country.

  • RSko

    So he's a 'chiver', online lookin at college girls while his wife is at home delivering a baby??

    I suppose all you fucknuts still believe "terrorists" hate us because of our "freedom".
    If everyone owned a gun, we wouldnt need these pigs in uniform… but just wait till they start turning the guns on our own citizens. Homicidal maniacs .. all of em.

    • Nickincollege

      Bleh… there are so many things wrong with your comment, I don't even know where to begin.

    • Kodos

      how long has it been, punk?

    • Smitty

      Soooo, you're what? 11? 12?

  • MITH


  • Neo

    it's the happy moment for the family…

  • Smitty

    Well, congrats you all!

    I gotta say, your chain of command screwed you. I'd look into who WAS let to go home on leave during that time. Just out of 'curiosity.' Just sayin'.

    While there was some, there was certainly far less douchebaggery in this thread than I expected.

  • Jim bob

    All the Best to you and your FAMILY.
