Its an M-ATV, it was made by Oshkosh i think, they are using it to replace some of the other armored transport, its much less prone to flipping in the mountainous areas like any of the other armored vehicles

"we are just doing are job hell i know that guys in the pic" Yeah, that's My point, the Guys are the Best in the World, just like that cousin of mine who ran around all over vietnam until He stepped on a (russian-made) Land Mine and got his Leg blown off... then the YID BASTARD (ashkenazi/Khazar-tribe) 'henry kissinger' negotiated a settlement to the War, with the russian (bolshoi-yid/Khazar-tribe) communists to 'end the War'. That Agreement left SEVERAL THOUSAND of the guys who were POW's to be DISAPPEARED into Siberia.. You can look this up Yourself, go to the website of Rolling Thunder, they have the Links to the Documents and
'congressional records' that show how the yids SOLD OUT the Guys, just like the ones that you Know.
READ AND LEARN about the Real History, how Americans have been USED by the communist/ashkenazi/ bolshoi/yid/false-jew khazar-tribe
creatures for at least the last Century (if not Millennium).
(Hint: why was the U.S. Army in Indochina? HEROIN, punk, "The Golden Triangle", almost any vietnam Vet will tell you about how the 'cia' was Running Drugs all over the place... Hey Why do you think the Opium Production in Afghanistan is at an all-time high now?(?) ...and that when the 'taliban' was i control of the country, they were ELIMINATING the drug dealers/growers, until the AMERICANS came in, installed a puppet government (karazi) and took back over the drug running... Hey, and BTW, 'Al Qaeda' was the cia operation to drive the Russians out of Afghanistan, and 'osama yo' mama'
was a CIA AGENT...get the picture??

I think you kind of Missed it... I was never in the 'military' for the Reason that I saw, from in My Family, that the 'military-industrial complex'
exists to Serve the Money, not protect the Nation. As Brave and Dedicated as the Soldiers are, they are Lied to, Used, Abused, Mis-Used,
Maimed, Killed and Discarded by and for people who have No Loyalty to
'America', only to their 'tribe', their 'fiat paper money,' and their
false-god, moloch... (look that up)

"International Truck" -- MaxxPro, Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle Category 1 & 2.

It's one of the most common vehicles of U.S. deployments now.

Well GTFO then! I hate soldiers complaining about how they are in shitty situations. WTF do you think when joining the army!? Margaritas on Hawaii? When you are a soldier you go to war. That means being sent to countries where people shoot at you! If you don't find that amusing get another job! Like a bartender och a chef! I on the other hand like when people try to blow my ass up so I enjoy it!

Have a good day!

Soldiers should be defending their own people, not the massive profit interests of trans-national corporations. Look up General Smedley Butler, read what he wrote in 'War is a Racket' and/or watch the press conferences he gave. Consider waking up for what days you have remaining upon this earth.

Dude, take a chill pill.

My stepdad was in Iraq and had to go through all that shit too. He came back with a love and a hate for it. Shit happens, people change, opinions are formed. Telling someone to get the fuck out isn't going to change their opinion or make them go "OH SNAP! YOU ARE SO RIGHT I AM SO WRONG I AM SORRY FOR EVERYTHING I DID!" no, it just makes you look like an overly excited ass who doesn't like people having their own say on something. Personally, I think you are fucking idiot for liking people trying to blow your ass up but if that is what you are into, I can't really say much to you and attempt to say your thoughts. So you probably should GTFO instead and keep your rude ass remarks to yourself.

:) Have a good day to you TOO sir/ma'am
