Danish soldiers rush their mortally wounded comrade to an American medevac. Helmand Province, Afganistan.

Was this back in 2006? Musa Qaleh?
Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning - Winston Chuchill after the British victory at El Alamein in 1942

It was a week ago. He was killed by small arms fire while on patrol.

That picture was taken somewhere in the Pacific. Bougainville I believe, or maybe Cape Gloucester.

Lumberjack Commandos of the Canadian special operations regiment.

 These fellows are from a long past tradition called "Pioneers", that picture is from Bosnia somewhere (probably Vuk)

 They are not fucking lumberjacks, nor are they part of special forces, now was their mother a goddamn beaver.

If you kids insist on necroing bullcrap threads from FF at the very least provide accurate citations that properly represent these characters. Google isn't hard to use and if you won't put in that kind of effort to learn, why are you wasting our time by misrepresenting images?


 Given the lack of knowledge imparted, this thread does not deserve to be stickied at all. I propose that the moderators remove this thread from permanent display as long as there are major issues with proper documentation and citation.
