This is the second News Photos thread I've seen, where women are wearing luggage on their heads.

Is this a fashion trend?

Running to consult my Cosmo....






Thanks Lump. Love these photos!

I figured all of the M16s would be A4s by now. They were starting to do the conversion from A2s to A4s as I was leaving Europe in 2000.

Maybe we could take note. Perhaps our own children could stand some of this training in our schools.

So on humanitarian missions Marines can carry weapons, but they have to be unloaded?

ETA - is it my imagination, or does the guy with the A2 carbine in the 1st pic belong to the 82nd?

He has a combat patch from the 82nd, but doesn't mean he is with them now (or when that pic was taken).

There are two Ukranians in my company, a man and a woman in our Chicago office. I asked the man if he was familiar with the AK. His response was that he was trained to use one in school at around age 10 or so, and that he enjoyed shooting the AK. Then the Ukranian lady interupted us and said, "you learned at age 10?! They started training us at age 8 (insert smug look on her face).

Interesting to see A2s in front line service. And a carbine, at that. Thanks Lumpy!

this is something the soviets did all over the place. I remember reading that they were required to be able to disassemble and re-assemble blind-folded in 3 minutes.
