Check it out guys....one of our guys took the photo and S.W.A.T. decided to use it for the cover of the August Issue. There's an excellent article with numerous combat camera photos of our servicemembers in action.

I subscribe to SWAT magazine and it is a good gun magazine. It's definitely worth picking up. Yes it is put out by Rich who used to run thefiringline.com.

Guys,

Remember, this is an August Issue....Not on the streets yet. We got a copy due to the picture being used.

Snark1,

I would really like to hear your reasoning for raising the bullshit flag.....and also the don't ask, don't tell comment.

The photographer who took that photo on the cover of SWAT Magazine is SSgt David Donovan. He's here in the same unit that I'm deployed with....

We went out on another Blackhawk ride today and here he is:



as well as me out over the Persian Gulf:



So please, explain your actions. If you would like his email address over here, IM me and I will give it to you. I'm sure he will email you a copy of the original photo used on the cover.

I think his silence speaks volumes. My cristal ball says he will re-regester with a new name and learn to keep his trap shut. Or, he is attending junior high summer school and got cought using the school's computer.

KF, a friend of mine Robert Olague is a NRA instructer who is going to write an article for SWAT, keep an eye on it.SWAT and SAR are the only gun rags I subscribe too, although I also should get Shotgun News. Stay safe and God bless.

We had thirty copies sent to our unit because of the photo being used.....I assumed that it was not on the street when I originally posted....I could be wrong. It may already be out there....

This photo was taken shortly after "Shock and Awe" started....

It's right off the Joint Combat Camera Center website...



In response to the first alert on this forward deployed base since Operation Iraqi Freedom started, Capt. Russell Flaming signs in for accountability reasons as Master Sgt. Troy Deaton holds a flashlight inside "Bunker 34". Both members are assigned to the 379 Expeditionary Communications Squadron. (U.S Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Terry L. Blevins)(Released)

And another one......



Master Sgt. Troy Deaton with the 379th Expeditionary Communications Squadron, ties on an Ohio State college flag to be flown on top of an tower that is being erected in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom March 22, 2003. Operation Iraqi Freedom is the multi-national coalition effort to liberate the Iraqi people, eliminate Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, and end the regime of Saddam Hussein.
