They have a lot of gear on, probably need to hydrate a lot.

Well he doesn't take them himself, usually it's a combat photographer or a soldier/marine himself who took the photo and they probably either send it to Military photos or have some place where people like him can take the pictures from to share with us, I'm not sure about the latter part but I'm 100% sure about the first part.

I am aware of this, it's just that some of the photos he gets and puts up. The photographers are basically on the front lines only instead of a rifle they are fighting with a camera. Likely the best example of this is the I.E.D. pic: [link]

If that isn't badass than I do not think I know what is.

Oh that way, yeah I have to agree, they are not trained to be in such conditions beside some basic training I guess, I do respect them indeed.
