  1. This is the proper text that came with Gieske’s photo. I know there is a shit storm on Digg because one submitter fucked the description up.

    • Do you have that link. I was in the Army, and whoever posted this is an idiot. This soldier clearly has a 25th Infantry unit patch, not 3rd Infantry so I question the authenticity. I’d like to see the Digg link.

  2. If you look up bad ass in the dictinonary you will see this picture.

  3. brb

    going to join military

  4. I understood everything after “used”.

  5. Ah yes, the M240, one of my most favored weapons of choice.
    “Nothing says happiness, like a belt fed weapon.”

    Although my M2HB “Ma Deuce” will always be my favorite.

    One guy commented as Hale Reach, but when I first looked at it, I thought of “Ghost” from MW2.

    Also, Oakley makes some kick ass ballistic shades, which are authorized (by the US Army anyways) to be worn in theater. They’re just a crap ton of money, lol.

  6. knowledge is half the battle
    the other half is violence
    or was it looking good shit cant remember
    hey syn you’ve been “in theatre” you tell me


    • Looking “good” has nothing to do with combat.
      However, the insurgents did think our vests for air conditioned, our ballistic lenses had x-ray vision, and we head force fields around our Forward Operating Bases.

      Fact of the matter is, the more shit you carry to try and look cool, the more weight it adds to your already heavy rig.

      You’re right about the first part though: Knowing is half the battle, violence pretty much takes over from there.

  7. The only thing missing is a cherub servitor in the background and the appropriate cries of “FOR THE EMPEROR!”

  8. He radiates a desire to bring peace and minimise death of innocents.

  9. This is the only cool thing I’ve seen, military-related, on this site. AT LAST!

  10. Whoever posted the text said he is with 3rd Infantry Division, the soldier clearly has a 25th Infantry Division patch on his left side which is for current unit affiliation. So whoever posted this is full of Sh*t!! Might be a photoshop.
