U.S. Army Sgt. Nick Andrews, an infantry squad leader with Company C, 1st Battalion, 133rd Infantry Regiment, from Marshalltown, Iowa, looks into the valley from a mountaintop outside the village of Nengaresh, Afghanistan, Jan. 21. Soldiers from Co. C, joined Afghan National Army Soldiers from Weapons Company, 1st Battalion, 201st Infantry Corp, on the patrol. After seven hours of dismounted searching through rugged terrain, Co. C and their Afghan counterparts located an improvised explosive device along Route Iowa, thanks to a tip from someone in the area of Tupac, Afghanistan. Photo by U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Ryan C.

Love the mountains in the background, it adds to the Welcome to Afghanistan feel :) Also love the Sergeant's MOE hand guards and stock on his m4. I am confused on why he wearing tan boots when most soldiers use those Brown Climbing boots?

Those tan boots go pretty well with the Multicam uniform as well as the UCP/-D uniform.

And ditto on the MOE.

They do, but they function different from the Boots issued. The brown hiking boots are said to "give soldiers better footing" on rocky terrain such as in Afghanistan, I personally do not know about that, but that is what I have heard.

My boots seem to work pretty well.

They are tan tactical boots and I haven't had any issues with them.

Mine are too, but I have heard that the Mountain boots provide better traction up in Afghanistan.

They might be trashed and those are his other pair. Supply can be slow in Afg.

Could be worse. His cammis could be so worn and crusty that they tear. Lawl

With a big rip in your pants, AND shrapnel up your butt, I'm pretty sure it would be hard to sit down for a while.
