    Yeah they made sure they told us over and over again "Do not shoot the wild life!". It's so easy to just push the joystick over and fire though...

    Nice pictures, btw!

    thx wilco for your pictures, interessting to see them.
    I have a question about the two kind of desert you have been (sands and rocky) wich one do you accomodate better during the various part of the mission? I served the IDF and made my basic training in the negev who is close similar to Jordan desert, lot of small wadi (valley) ideal to hide a complete company, night sky full of stars making navigation easy! But I never was in a sand desert like Kuwait one, what the difference?

    Looks like an owl with his mouth open.. Hot night......

    Thanks for posting these, Wilco.

    That area with the "desert pavement" looks like it was not the most fun place to throw down a bivy......

    Not trying to take the piss, but how is that a deployment? You go to Morocco, Jordan and Kuwait, for training exercises, right?

    Would've thought a deployment meant actually being deployed to, for instance, Afghanistan or Iraq?
