I was a sergeant this year, I was really too busy to take photos. I was tasked with trying to keep my section battle ready, getting briefed and writing Combat Orders prior to missions. And manning the primus. But I did bring my camera, and I had lent it out to God-Damn-Fritz-Morman, and he too a bunch of photos. I'll post some photos that others took.

Please remember that at this event we were portraying Motorifles Recon, not VDV Recon, so slightly different kit on us.

Barracks life!

I'm working on the primus, because the wood burning stove proved too inconsistent and slow at heating our massive pot for food. And once the primus gets going, its like a rocket engine. I am extra glad that I got this type of primus as opposed to the 8R clam shell-like version, because we wouldn't have been able to fit that big pot on that.

Our professional duh is cleaning out pots and mess kits.

The Creep level is high

Talking about Vince and me. Once you see, I don't think you can un-see it.

In memory of Sgt. Pettyjohn, who didn't make it back from the mission

We actually had a few more pieces not in frame.

Warsaw Pact Camp

The last two years they have been using these tents. They are not Soviet or East German. But Tascabe insists that they look like a type of East German tent. They are much easier to set up and take down compared to the Soviet and Soviet style ones we had used previous years. (just noticed the dead armadillo!)

Our entire motorpool this year.

It consisted of just two UAZ's

Army work, is manly work!

Chopping wood, and other manly life lessons, brought to you by Operation: East Wind!

Digging slit/run-off trenches to keep our tents from flood. And digging more trenches and expanding old ones in the rain!

Briefing before stepping off on our 'Tunguska Valley' mission

Dave is talking, I'm feeling frustrated as to why he's talking, while you can see Cpt. Taskabov and the German are not amused either.

Halfway through through that mission, at the top of the valley. Resting, and essentially acting as bait. We were supposed to draw out any NATO hiding out in that valley.

Making our detour plans to the mission before continuing

It seems like the photos I have saved on my computer right now are just what I saved.
I have to go track down my memory card from my camera for more photos.
