Combat Photo in Iraq

I must stress that I DO NOT own these photos. Unfortunately I can not name who took these shots- but I'm pretty certain they came from some of the guys from the Combat Photo unit in the 8th Marines, MWSS-373. I derived a few of these from em while I was attached to them.

Just wanted to share these with you folks, put a little OohRah! in your lives today.

Thanks, it brings back a few memories of when I went over a couple of years ago. Especially the LAV C2 at night.

Excellent series, all evocative, poignant. Without arguing the politics, better if all those young men could be out of harm's way and back with their loved ones.
