One of my old army buddies sent me this picture - it was apparently on the front page of one of the major newspapers there (Jyllandsposten).

I laughed and laughed. When I was a platoon commander, I had this guy as a young brand-spanking new sergeant (squad leader) and he looked like a 12 year-old kid!

Look at him now - all grown up: A major, no less, in command of his own infantry company in Kosovo.


I feel old now.

Well then, buy him a Tuborg, Claus!


Edited to add: That sure doesn't look like a Garand he's carrying, either!

And he certainly no longer looks 12 yrs old !! Looks like he could take care of himself though.
