Major Bergman has been instrumental in setting up a program which offers alternative employment to local people who have risked their lives to make a living by gathering scrap metal in the minefields. Mr Kahir Khan has a prosthetic leg. He is now working in a safe and secure metal recycling centre. A purpose-built de-mining machine known as a Casspir is parked in the background. It offers a safer way of clearing the former battlefields of landmines.

Greek sailors are seen during an annual military parade in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki on Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2008. Oct. 28 is a national holiday in Greece, marking the anniversary of the country's refusal of a 1940 ultimatum made by Italy's Fascist leader Benito Mussolini to allow his forces to enter and occupy Greek territory. The action marked the start of Greece's military participation in World War II

On paper...but after you get the compensation right you can still pu rounds down range and hope for the best...also i say wearing the armour on that terrain was a crappy feeling...i see the turkish mountain commandos keep use a few 7.62mm rifles in their squads...they also dont wear body armour, they say mobility will save youre life before a ceramic plate will:roll:

You know what's even cooler, pressing the Home button and the Sleep button at the same time will take a screenshot. Saves you the trouble of making a photo. ;)

Really sad to see that. I went to school with Lt Mann and his wife who is also a Marine officer. He was my brother's best friend and she has always been very close with my family. His wife and my brother actually just ran the Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday in memory of Jason. He was a phenomenal athlete and competitor, extremely intelligent, and a very very close friend. He will be missed
