What's that Marine carrying on his back in the first pic...the two tubes strapped to the sides of his ruck? AT4's?

I don't think that those are AT-4's if my memory serves me correctly. How big is a Javalin?

Dan, I get these photos from the news wires. Most of these pics are available for various news agencies to use but most will never be printed. I figure some folks here would appreciate seeing them before they get deleted forever.
