That's not Afghanistan, that's near the village of Duba-Yurt in January, 2000 (Second Chechen War) according to Wikipedia

Quote
Sherman's March to the Sea is the name commonly given to the Savannah Campaign conducted around Georgia from November 15, 1864 to December 21, 1864 by Maj. Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman of the Union Army in the American Civil War. The campaign began with Sherman's troops leaving the captured city of Atlanta, Georgia, on November 16 and ended with the capture of the port of Savannah on December 21. It inflicted significant damage, particularly to industry and infrastructure (per the doctrine of total war), and also to civilian property. Military historian David J. Eicher wrote that Sherman "defied military principles by operating deep within enemy territory and without lines of supply or communication. He destroyed much of the South's physical and psychological capacity to wage war"

Quote
"The Long Walk" – a British Army Technical Officer approaches a suspect device at the junction of Manor Street and Oldpark Road in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The quotation on the sign on the building to the left is from the Old Testament (Amos 4:12).
And so he spoke, and so he spoke, that lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o'er his hall, with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.

A terrible lack of trigger discipline....

Anyway, new photo from my grandpas collection:


1938, somewhere in Southern Germany. A column of "Reichsarbeitsdienst"-workers march along a street on their way to a building site. Notice the paramilitary style of the young boys.
The RAD was used as a tool to introduce military lifestyle and behaviour to young boys before they were drafted into the Wehrmacht.
