Soldier of the USA 11th ACR with a Thompson submachine gun.
I don’t see anything from 11 ACR here, this guy is clearly wearing a 9th Infantry Division patch.
Someone pls explain to me this rotatey thing they do when reloading.
Quickly checking the ejection port to spot if it’s a malfunction that stopped the weapon or it’s just empty. Once discovering the weapon is empty the quick rotation in the opposite direction while drawing a fresh mag ejects the empty one with more force.
If you can’t feel and hear the difference between a malfunction and being empty, there’s something wrong with you.
A rather unique design.
I’ve never seen a comp on a garand befo
thanks for posting this!(via
Makes me want to go back to the range with my GoPro.
I was going to post this pic, but someone beat me to it. SOOO Upset that she got married.
Battered body, undaunted spirit.
U.S. Army Sgt. Matt Krumwiede was on patrol in Afghanistan in June of 2012 when he stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED). The explosion tore away both his legs, damaged his left arm, and ripped open his abdominal cavity. The 22-year-old has since undergone around 40 surgeries and is learning to walk with prosthetic legs. He is keen to re-join the infantry as soon as his injuries allow.
I have mixed feelings about seeing these pics as I know everyone here and served with them. I was in the TOC when this happened and remember being unable to do anything more than just following this on the radio. Switching back and forth between the company freqs and the MEDEVAC. I’m not in the unit anymore, but still work with this kid’s squad leader at my new unit.
