The return to the real world and my dy job has seriously hurt my posting frequency. There ought to be a law.
Here’s some Marines as an interim post:
Philippine Sea (Feb. 13, 2006) – Marines of the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit (31 MEU) conduct battle-sight zeroing with M-16’s to adjust the weapon for maximum accuracy on the flight deck of USS Juneau (LPD 10). The three-ship, Sasebo-based forward deployed amphibious ready group consisting of Juneau, USS Essex (LHD 2) and USS Harpers Ferry (LSD 49) U.S. Navy photo by Journalist 3rd Class Adam R. Cole (RELEASED)
(Click pic for better look.) Although there’s brass laying around on the deck, note that these Marines’ weapons have closed dust covers. And the guy in the foreground has no magazine in.
Pic from Navy News Stand, which (as usual) has a very much larger version available.
UPDATE: Oh, and since I don’t have much for you today, here’s a couple of Instapinch posts:
- Thursday Cat Blogging, a post from December that I meant to point out at the time but somehow managed to forget
- “Interogitive Texaco”, a more recent offering great insight on airborne refueling
Both posts feature the F-14 Tomcat and several pics. Definitely worth a look.
