Thanks for the gear!


This is a pic of me in the gun turret of an 1151 Humm-V, in all my body armor.

My Wife and Father pitched in to buy me the Kevlar mask, to keep my face in-tact.  The mask is not issued, it's a prototype, which saved my face the last time we were ambushed.   

The pic was taken in the Jalrez Valley (about 20 miles west of Kabul)  which is one of the real danger zones here in Afghanistan.  (On another side note, myself and my team are in the Infantry.
