Me? Learning my job, so when I am the guy supporting guys like these, I am able to keep them alive after the shit hits the fan...

I consider it as important as whatever it is they were doing.

Same team, different job, no less important.

Amen!  :salute:

As for me, on that day, I was in a bar.  Seems rather irrelevant what I was doing compared to what they were doing.  It's nice to be reminded as to my priorities from time to time.

That's ok Techno, if you decorate your workspace with teddy bears too, you'll be just like the real soldiers.  :D

And that's a very nice 3rd Battalion regimental banner among all those "1st Battalion" photos.  :)

I was at work with a red t-shirt on, while Dog Walker Junior was out playing in the sandbox.

TH6: What was the source of the photos and are there any more?

There are usually more images available I just try to pick the one's that tell a story. As for the 3RCR color I plead ignorance I just liked the image and didnt look too closely. I get a FAIL for inattention to detail. ;)

It's always felt unreal at first before starting the training. (Dagging stuff) But now hitting the ground here training, it really open my eyes today with the breifings I had. Loads of information and education. Anyways time to pop another Budweiser here in the States.
