    Thought it'd be cool to see some deployment pics from the many Military members we have here!


    Cool little fact about this place. In the bottom left of this photo near the wrist, you can see a whole bunch of helmets that are placed into the cement. From what we were told by the MI guys, these are actual helmets of dead Iranian soldiers killed in the Iran-Iraq war. The helmets also go across the road way at both ends of this parade area, almost like speed bumps. They said Saddam had the helmets used in the building of these parade grounds as a reminder of Iraq's victory over Iran, even though they didn't win the war. Saddam was just crazy if that's true!

    EDIT: Info on the monument and the helmets: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hands_of_Victory

    Some large picture of Saddam at Talil Airbase, Iraq in '03. And yes, the camera we had at the time was horrible.
