awesome pics Nick
If I am asked what we are fighting for, I can reply in two sentences. In the first place, to fulfil a solemn international obligation . . . an obligation of honor which no self-respecting man could possibly have repudiated. I say, secondly, we are fighting to vindicate the principle that small nationalities are not to be crushed in defiance of international good faith at the arbitrary will of a strong and overmastering Power.

I like all of them. To be a real soldier, you've got to get dirty and play rough, Get a few bullet holes and dents in that equipment. That may not be the most popular war but it's showing the different Nations what their forces are capable of in battle.
“War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.”

Boy oh boy, It would be so awesome to be dressed how that sniper is dressed. Ahh, I can't wait til I join the Marines. So like, I've heard that snipers just go out for like 3 days straight and hunt the enemy. After that, they go back to they're base. Is this true?

except for the whole not really being that glamorous as im sure you imagine it being
i guess it depends what your area of operation is. a sniper in jungle will act very dif to one in urban location
