Full photo set – HERE

The pictures look a lot happier this month for some reason. It almost makes it look like a decent place to live.

Hardly any military/gun related pics, I was almost tempted to not post about it.


James Edward Orr, 20, from the First Battalion Eighth Marines Alpha Company, lifts weights made from barbed wire at a makeshift gym at an outpost in Kunjak in Helmand province, Feb. 17. (Finbarr O’Reilly/Reuters)

And I thought prison gyms on TV shows looked badass!  You can’t get much more badass than lifting spooled up barbed wire.  That Marine needs to get those pants fixed though. You can’t be too safe with that don’t ask don’t tell policy. LOL

Allied soldiers, vehicles and equipment swarm onto the French shore during the Normandy landings, June 1944.

I don’t know how I missed this photoset when it first came out.

War truly looks like hell.  These pictures are a good reminder that freedom is not free.

If you follow my blog, you know that I am a sucker for good photo blogs.  The Big Picture is the PBlog that started it all for me.

There is now a clever parody blog of The Big Picture, called The Big Caption.  Here is one example:

They are all pretty funny.
