Here’s a gem from @mookiefiasco ’s facebook. 24 years old. What the hell were they thinking when they sent us to a combat zone? #iraq #oif #usnavy #cheese #smile #sandbox #operationiraqifreedom #desert #aliairbase

Earlier this year we teamed with many of you to raise money to send a Marine Corps Veteran to his unit’s reunion in Colorado. Today that Marine will be traveling to his reunion. Please remember to keep him in your thoughts this week. Thank you again for being amazing and funding 100% of this event for him. #kniestedtfoundation #supportourveterans #vetern #usmc #semperfi #marinecorps #marine #reunion #darkhorse #community #family #support #outdoors #colorado #operationiraqifreedom
U.S. Marine Cpl. Hector Ayala from Los Angeles is seen here examining his beyonet after his unit secured a bridge on the outskirts of Baghdad during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. . . . . . . #history #iraq #iraqwar #baghdad #america #unitedstates #marines #army #rangers #losangeles #middleeast #war #warandpeace #warfare #conflict #militaryhistory #operationiraqifreedom
Operation Phantom Fury- The Second Battle of Fallujah. Some say it’s the heaviest urban combat seen by U.S. Forces since The Battle of Hue City in Vietnam 1968. At the end of the battle approximately half of the enemy forces were food for the rabid packs of dogs and the other half captured. The fighting was constant and heavy, while fighting insurgents there was no defined front line. The dead laid on the streets and began the decomp process. Gangs of dogs roamed the street and began to “clean up”. Most of the insurgents were foreign fighters who came to the city to kill as many Americans as they could before dying in combat to go to their heaven. If success was a precursor to go to heaven not many of them are there. The coalition forces were made up of #usmc #usarmy #britisharmy and iraqi army forces. This picture is of a #Marine in fallujah right in the heat of it by the time stamp on the picture. His long gun appears to be a #mossberg500 . It’s a guess what he has in his packs. My guess would be belted machine ammunition on the side and maybe shotgun shells in the front pouch or it could be a grenade pouch. If you look carefully on the stock of his #shotgun you can see additional rounds. The blue hulled cartridge is most likely a federal foster slug. The others would be 00 buckshot. The belt on his helmet looks to be for a #240bravo #762nato . On his leg I honestly can’t tell if that’s two different pouches possibly for shotgun shells or one of those #m12 universal holsters. Hard to tell in this pic with the angles. Shotguns were used extensively in urban fights like this one. They were used extensively for breaching and then fighting in close. Shotguns are hard to keep fed to continually fight. They’re not atomic bombs but as far as fighting in close they deliver a lot of payload on the #badguy . This post is kind of rambling but I wanted to share this photo. #gunsofinstagram #gunsdaily #gunporn #marines #soldier #soldiers #operationphantomfury #oif #operationiraqifreedom
We are delighted to be spending this evening with @BritishArmy veteran, podcaster and bestselling author @grjbooks... and you can too, because we'll be LIVE on Instagram at 5.30pm. This week marks 10 years since the end of #OpTelic - the codename for the UK's military operation conducted throughout the Iraq War. Op Telic was one of the largest deployments of Britsh Forces since #WW2 , with 46,000 troops despatched at the start of invasion. Though political arguments around Op Telic are certainly rife, Geraint will be talking with us tonight on the aspect of this war that the Legion has been working on since Iraq deployments began: the men and women who served there, and the care we need to give them today. As a veteran himself, he'll be exploring the ways both the Legion and the public can help those who served and sacrificed on our behalf, and sharing his personal experience of Iraq deployment. Don't miss this unique and important live stream at 5.30 tonight, and be sure to submit any questions you have for Geraint in the comments below 👇 #rbl #royalbritishlegion #iraqveteran #iraqveterans #geraintjones #author #authorsofinstagram #opherrick #militarycross #britisharmy #britisharmysoldier #iraq #operationiraqifreedom #soldiers #usmc #brothersinarms
Everyone has quirks. For vets, some of the funny little things we do come from being down range in the worst places on earth for a year or more. Swerving away from trash on the road, or just being meticulous about cleaning your nails. We want to hear about your little everyday habits that started in a far away battlefield. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #military #usmilitary #usarmy #army #usmc #marines #usnavy #navy #usaf #airforce #vet #veteran #veterans #oif #oef #operationiraqifreedom #operationenduringfreedom #OIR #operationinherentresolve #militarylife #deployment #war #vfw #americanlegion
