I know we have a bunch of veterans here how about sharing some pics or videos if you have them.
Here I did find a video of the Airborne brigade I served in "FOLGORE"  swearing in the new blood two years after me. I was 9/92 retired in 95

 Training videos from other people, When i was in we could not have cameras. So before a jump I would ductape mine inside my left arm.
In this video they overshot the landing zone so the last three don't get to jump.
 Never happened to me, with my last name I was always second or third at the door.
 One time I jumped off the Aeritalia G222 instead of the C130 and they reversed us I was #28 at the door it sucked. I had to run for the door, and then I was well into the drop zone.
That meant quite of a hike back to the rendezvous point in full gear and carring the deployed parachute back.

Before the invasion I was bored and started sharpening knives for something to pass the time.  A professional photographer that was attached to our unit took this.





This wasn't my issued rifle, but during the invasion of Iraq, I happened upon this para FAL and liked it so I took a photo with it.





This was a typical roadside scene during the invasion

I spent a lot of time doing convoy security during the invasion, so this was my view for a while

We went so long without electricity that I didn't get a haircut for WAY too long.... I got fed up and snipped it all off with scissors







Then I busted out my only razor and shaved it so that it would be even.    You'll probably notice that I hadn't had a shower or clean clothes in a while.

This was actually from Kuwait, right on the border of Iraq, when we were waiting to invade.  You can see that the dust storms really were a bit of a pain.

The above photos were all from the invasion and were taken with a 35mm camera. I scanned all the photos so I could upload them. 

The following pictures are from my second deployment and I brought a digital camera that time. 


During the second deployment our mission was different than during the invasion.  During the invasion we were tasked with providing combat bridge support for our invading armor.  During my second deployment we were tasked with maintaining supply route bridges.  It was actually more dangerous since we weren't traveling behind a division of combat troops and the threat was roadside bombs and guerrilla attacks instead of military vs military fighting.

I took a tour of Ur, which is the claimed birthplace of Abraham (from the bible).  We had built a base around it so I didn't need to carry my normal load of gear.

Since we pretty much provided our own security, we travelled like this








We also got sent out to train Army units on construction of this type of bridge.  On this mission I had 3 other Marines sent with me to help advise the Army unit.
