Post your military pics

Found this pic at my parents house over the weekend and thought I would share. If you have any pics then feel free to post them here.

This was taken in March of '95 in Norway a couple of hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle. We were doing a joint training exercise with NATO forces. One of the coolest things I saw at night at this very spot was the Aurora Borealis aka the Northern Lights.



In case you're wondering what the Aurora Borealis looks like (taken from the net):

Steve, that would be cool to see blown up T-72s. No dead bodies, but I like seeing the carnage our Abrams cause.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
