Here's a group of Marines deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.  These Marines make up only about thirty percent of my deployed unit.  Notice my (unauthorized) wear of two large vintage Marine Corps Mexican rings.  I thought it'd be something neat to look at fifty years from now.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.  We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.  It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same."  -RR
