RallyPoint seems to be a great place to share our stories and pictures. I have seen and responded to first and last pictures in uniform discussion which were focuses on each of us. I would like to see pictures of us with our comrades in arms. I hope you will join me in sharing pictures of yourself with others in uniform.
Three pictures of me with friends - Top winter at Grafenwoehr in 1982 (2) graduation day at West Point on May 28, 1980, (3) attending a post-graduation wedding in dress blues for the first time in June 1980 with my two best friends; (4) Postcard of company formation at West Point in 1978. I am in the front row 2nd from the left.
I request that you add some information about the picture [where, when, who and what] when you post a picture.

[Caveat - In the West Point Graduation picture the brand new 2LT in the middle is not making an obscene gesture. His middle finger has a band aid/surgical tape just below the tip of his finger. I can't remember if he was still wearing a splint or not that day.]

"Smoke em if you got em" Smoke break at Fort Leonard Wood in March 1975. Back in the days when smoking was encouraged in the US Army and packs of 4 cigarettes were in C-rations.

They were new for us MAJ Byron O. Earlier in the day we were about to enter wooden barracks when the steps caved in and plan was coordinated while we waited :-)

That's right, "SMOKE EM IF YOU GOT EM" I always ended up with " Lucky Strike or Camel no filter" and traded for something else

Oh! Beanie Wienies, my favorite. Smokes were super dry, some went up like a fuse when lit. My choice of smokes, Camel shorts!

I don't know why, but I do not have any photos of when I served except two of me alone in uniform....and this one while I was in Basic Training.....maybe it's cause there were no cell phones back then and it's not like anyone carried around cameras.

SP5 Arthur Ben Ephraim I think women got too much Of a wasp like waist-line it seems unhealthy.. .. they’re causing themselves to throw up and it’s bad for the esophagus. The stomach acid is bad for the teeth breaking down the enamel. For each time s’one throws up they need to brush their teeth several times to prevent decay.

I'll go with this one from Antarctica way. Looks like we're loaded up with marker flags to lay out a route. We'd drag a 250 foot rope with a rag on it and that was the spacing for which every one had to be drilled in. We'd shift around as at say -40, your butt numbed up pretty quick. I'm on the right. The guy in the lighter coveralls "won the raffle". I'd have a spare seat so would take someone along for the traverse. Few people ever get out of town and my job had me outside most of the time. Based on the load out, it looks like a run from McMurdo to Marble Point, about 60 miles away. We'd take two tracked vehicles with sleds, Scott Tent, preway heater, survival gear, generator, drills, etc. One vehicle would hang at the flag and when the rope end passed, we'd double click the mic on VHF for the next one. When a butt got numb, the vehicles would trade places. We'd also set up core monitoring locations to check the ice thickness over the season. The reason for the flags besides cargo runs is the Hueys could drop low in a near whiteout and follow the bread crumbs back to base.

CDR (Join to see) - I remember VXE-6 covered my six by cooking their logs. Seems I sent the XO down to South Pole on the first double shuttle flight. Turns out there wasn't a second plane. Logs said it went down hard for parts. I drank free at the club for the rest of the season. Nobody had a problem chipping in on the two cases of scotch I bought off the SP Station Master with. Yup, Puckered Pete was a gnarly ass bird.

Awesome story! That's what we did down there -- what happened on the ice, stayed on the ice! That place holds many a secret.

Do you have any FLAT EARTH BENEATH THE DOME records suitable for Kangaroo Kourt such as SCOTUS ? Following orders, falsifying geography and cartography may best be redressed as a violation(s) of legitimate Nuremberg Trial verdicts.
