"Thanks" just doesn't seem to cut it so in honor of our veterans so let's see some military pictures, past or present, of someone in your life that has or is serving. We'd like to recognize everyone on here that has served or had a family member who has served. Every person that post a picture along with info about it on this thread will be entered into a drawing at the end of the month to win a Survival Knife from the generous people at Gerber Knives!

As a bonus......You will get an extra "ticket" in the hat for anyone that signs up and lists the name of someone entered in this contest as the referrer.

A very cold day  on the gun.  We were on our way to Al Asad, Iraq

Coming back from Al Asad.  Insurgents would throw mines in this water to blow us up.  Lead vehicle would always sweep before we all entered.

1 week left.....there should be way more entries than this! If we make it to 10, then we'll give away two knives! Also, don't forget that if someone signs up and lists you as the referrer, you will get an extra entry into the drawing.
