I am so proud of our Marines and all of the troops. Thank you for this thread and the picture too. When I see the pictures of the troops I always wish we could send them to their families. Many of them may not even have a computer or if they do , know how to see pictures of the troops and maybe a son , boyfriend, husband. Wouldn't they love to have pictures like this .

Thanks so much for this.

I discovered that it IS possible to do the two simotaneously.

Nice photo, OPH. Thank you!

BTW, I have two nephews in the Marines. One is a jet mechanic; the other is the sergeant that yells at you -- oh, yeah, Drill Sergeant. They are both still stateside.

Ever since I discovered there was a difference between boys and girls I have gone for older men. I just changed my mind!! Whoa Hoo!!

On a serious note, God be with our Military and our leaders.

"put on their gear in their barracks early Thursday"

Folks, I have to tell you that the figures I am able to make out doesn't look as though they are putting on gear. Those hands are just a little low.

Actually I was just kidding you. In reality I love the Freeper Gals. Us men rant and rave and stand defensive with clenched fists, while you gals stay rational and get out there and do,do,do. So from a appreciative fan of yours...God bless and know that you all are held in high esteem. P.S had to stop in the middle of this note to watch our President at the Army Navy game.

Using my expert, and in-depth, photo analysis of this photo I have ascertained the following:

Yes, there is a shadow on the wall behind the men. The shadow is caused a rising sun (could be setting sun - but indulge my fantasy, please). The only shadow I see is of the two Marines. The Marine on the left is one of the finest things I've seen in a long time. I wish the Marine on the right would give me a chance at closer inspection. Should that inspection ever occur you'd have my analysis as soon as I could catch my breath.

Better than that, how 'bout the phone numbers/email addresses of FReepMarines/X-Marines (save one, of course)!

That'd be more fun than this photo ... oh yeah, those too!

"this photo"

LOL! There's 3 guys there and a light in the background. There's one in front of the light keeping the light off the one on the right, and making that image on the wall. I'm sure they were ROTFLTAO making that pic and getting it out!

Well, if there's a way to let these Marines know just how much we've enjoyed looking at it (surely more than they enjoyed making it)...

Please, let us know.

I can't believe how sexist you women are, exploiting us men like we are meat! We work hard for our rights, and then you folks go and treat us like the minorities we are. Next you will take away our voting rights. Sheese...

Yikes, who let him in here? In an moment we'll all be writing Haiku ... get the drill ... 5-7-5. IB always ratchets things up a bit ... I'm not sure, but I think he's a high roller. Should we beg for a pic of him in his dress blues? I'll bet he's too shy.
