Perspective

This is a picture my friend Richard in Korea sent me. After seeing this photo - it kinda makes me stop ranting about little things like my doctor visit. Makes you realize there is more to life out there and not let petty stuff ruffle your feathers. Be safe and I hope to see you soon!

That soldier doesn't have a magazine in his weapon.

I can't believe they are still using m-16's. Isn't the AR-15 the new standard military "tactical" weapon?

How funny! I didn't even notice! Maybe there is one cleverly stowed in his hat...

Aaron said...

Jason, the M-16 is the military version of the AR-15. They're the same gun.

I'm sure he's got magazines in his vest. Too bad he's not wearing his night-vision goggles.

Aaron said...

Jason, check out the MP-5, it's become the favorite tactical weapon for close-quarters and police action.

` He's so cute and innocent-looking, even though he could also blow someone's head off!

so glad I live in a country where joining the military is still a choice decision, not mandatory. hope your friend returns safely

I like reading rantings about little things. I think as long as the perspective is under it somewhere, it's ok.

Note the 1000 rounds per minute discharge rate. This is my weapon of choice against Zombies in large numbers, the GE Minigun would throw my back out.
