Some old photos of me when I first started to learn how to walk again, as well as some pics from me on my second deployment back in 2005 – 2006.
I’ll post some other ones in the NSFW section, just in case.

    are you still active duty?

    I just heard a piece on NPR talking about a dude that has both his legs removed and went back and was doing combat patrols and shit

    good stuff and thanks a million for doin what ya do. I’m a civi but i’d fight along side ya’ll any day every day. I can’t help but take notice of your rifle, M1A correct? Reason for carrying that vs the more common AR? Even though it’s not as modular, given the choice I would take an M1A or socom over an AR. I may be completely wrong in this, but I would guess that M1A is less prone to failures than a more modular weapon. Also, I like the bigger bullet. Remember, I have no military or combat experience… Read more »

    Maybe its not his choice, but if he were forced to, he would. Or maybe hes just trying to show his admiration and respect to a member of our armed services. Then again, you probably don’t know what you’re talking about, so do me a gigantic favor would you? Go to Iraq of Afghanistan, and tell one of the dudes with a beard and a gun that you don’t like him because of the way he oppresses the people of his country and murders innocent civilians because they don’t agree with him. At least we try to limit their deaths… Read more »

    “Orwell did his best to try and warn us about people like you, I take it you think Big Brother is a wonderful idea huh?” 1984 was a warning against people who are concerned about poor people dying in wars are about nothing more than oil? I’ll to read that one again…I thought he was against global oppression, war and material greed but maybe I’m reading to much into it. If you think that these wars are about anything other than oil then you are big brothers bitch. If you think that the solider who submitted these pictures gave his… Read more »

    I AM showing my respect to our (assuming your American) armed services. Although not debilitating, a previous injury has made me not applicable for combat with our military. Finally, I currently service the equipment that saves the lives of our military men and woman so they can continue hunting those who “murder poor people”. As has been stated in another reply, we are not the ones setting off explosives in busy market places full of women, children, and other non-combatants. If you disagree or wish to debate, try using something other than sarcasm.

    I apologize for the sarcasm. “we are not the ones setting off explosives in busy market places full of women, children, and other non-combatants” Yes you are. Hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of innocent people have died at the hands of American and British soldiers in places all over the world for many hundreds of years. Yanks and Britts put Hitler in power, helped Franco win the Spanish Civil war. They funded Al Qaida, armed Sadam and now send the best and strongest young people to clear up the mess. This war is not about your freedom or liberty its… Read more »

    “i’ve made fun of you being a loser in other threads.”

    do you mean this thread…cos yeah man…i cried myself to sleep that night. I mean you really owned me. I was on my back foot with your witty banter! and i think its that very same banter that gets you all those + votes and friends. I wish I could be as funny intelligent and brilliant as you.

    PS I got AIDS from your mum

    Way to go, limp dick.

    Not only did you try and fall back on wit’s retarded and shunned cousin sarcasm but you also just told everyone you have a terminal disease and you retreaded over your one decent line about my “mum”.

    I get those – votes because I want them. It shows me the faggots I rip on in here aren’t actually able to come up with a response so they just click – away on their weak little Macbooks. That’s the best they can do.

    And its still heads above anything you’ve said or done.

    I don’t have kids but I’m sure everyone here who does is happy to know that you’re a violent pedophile.

    I also see you’ve attempted to dismiss something you can’t afford by calling it compensating. Don’t get too upset or you’ll spill your latte.

    Enjoy your AIDS. God invented it to cure the world of degenerates like you.

    Where was the third photo taken? It seems like an important place but I can’t remember having read anything about it. Also I’m not American but knowing your position on equality and your beliefs, I feel proud of you. I wasn’t going to comment on your first submission because it seemed so intimate, like it was meant only for Americans. But now that I know your reasoning I feel like I have a right to, thank you for your service.

It’s a funny thing about liberal america haters though.

    That is the most ridiculous comment I’ve seen on this site. Why don’t you go ahead and ask this man how he feels about “liberal scum” and if they can be true Americans despite disagreeing with you or not?

    Oh yeah and in Iran and Afghanistan they execute people, in America they got people like you who simply declare that everyone who disagrees with them isn’t really American. Both of these methods do the job really, one’s just messier than the other.
