U.S. Army Soldiers with 5th Battalion, 20th Infantry Regiment prepare a concertina wire barrier
along Route Chilliwack in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, Feb. 9, 2012. The purpose of the
operation was to construct a strong point and deny the enemy freedom of movement and
evacuation. (U.S. Army photo by Spc. Kristina Truluck/Released)


My military imagery is available for public domain. As the photographer, I don't have control over
how you may use it, but I ask that it be done with respect to the individuals represented here.

This was one of my most favorite missions. Ever.
There was plenty of sandbag filling going on all that week, too. Dx

Hah, fuck that! Glad that's over. The worst was filling a 9ft tall HESCO with a small water bucket. Great times.
