This was the first event of 2006 for 3rd Platoon. We were attached to the 2nd Rangers for this event. Some of these photos were taken with a "james bond" zippo lighter camera that my wife gave me. If you'd like to get a zippo camera, you can get them at ThinkGeek.com . More photos will be posted as the 35mm slides are developed. The rest were taken with a period Kodak camera.
