Hes wearing pajama because during attacks everybody has to man sectors. So if you were in bed, you would have to get up and put all your body armor on and sit outside.

I remember this shot when ti first came out - made me think of the old WWII news reels from the Pacific theater. Well done, going to protect your friends, no matter what.

so you were the one who took this shot, i remember reading about it, the guy was afraid he was gonna get disciplined for not wearing proper issued underwear but i think they said something like anyone who'll run into a fight in pink boxer shorts doesn't deserve to be punished

Hello,

I really like this picture, and I'm just wondering if I can use this picture for an assignment at college. I will put your name on the picture to credit you for it.

Regards,
Daniel Holden

If this is the Korengal then its not suprising at all. Read WAR by Sebastian Junger its about the Korengal valley. It mentions this sort of incident happening alot.

There not rubbish bins, theyre barriers usually filled with sand/dirt etc.. anything dense and heavy. Some versions used at FOB's are capable of stopping cars at high speed :)



Great pic mate.
