Video - The Battle of Gapyong

A fierce battle of the Korean War that you probably never heard of... but should.

The Battle of Gapyong. It feels odd to know that I went bungy jumping over the same river. I feel somewhat ashamed to have enjoyed myself knowing now, what happened there. I might not have jumped if I knew then, what I know now.

Girls with Guns - September 2015

I do my best never to post the same photo twice, but I think one or two of these may have already been posted. I don't really know, after so many years of curating Girls with Guns photos, they start to all look familiar!

Have a great weekend and I'll be back soon USA!

MLRS (Multiple Launch Rocket System) Live Fire in South Korea

Sometimes I really love my job. Don't get my wrong, I love my job most days. But some days, I really, really love my job.

Today my unit conducted a live fire exercise which was conducted jointly with the Republic of Korea Army, with the M270A1 MLRS rocket launcher and for only the second time, I was able to capture an image of a rocket just as it's blasting off (I guess that would be the correct term) from the launcher.

An awesome "shot", I must say.

Stay tuned for a video as well.

I'm almost finished with my term of service in the army. I'll be leaving Korea and leaving the army and coming back home to start a new life and, of course, kick start again.
