Photos of SSG Russell Lee Klika

Posted By Blackfive • [May 23, 2006]

So many of you loved this photo of a Cavalry Trooper ("If you ain't Cav...!") by Staff Sergeant Russell Lee Klika that I decided to try to find some more of his work.  He's really good.  In fact this is a first, the same photographer with consecutive Picture of the Week posts - check these out:


Pvt. Shane Irwin and Pvt. Zachary McDaniel of Charlie Troop, 1st Squadron, 33rd Cavalry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, walk along a contaminated canal as they provide security for a U.S. hired forensics archaeology team searching for Saddam-era mass grave sites. The water color is due to years of contamination at the land fill.


Soldiers of Charlie Troop, 1st Squadron, 33rd Cavalry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, launch a UAV prior to a mission from Camp Hope near Sadr City, Iraq.


A young girl smiles at Soldiers as they pass by her home.


Weapons squad leaders of 1st Battalion, 187th Infantry, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division conduct a seven day machine gun training course for soldiers of the 4th Iraqi Army Division at Forward Operating Base Summerall. The course gave the IA soldiers the opportunity to zero their PKC machine guns and to learn the fundamentals of different firing positions. Here a Soldier from the 1/187th watches as IA soldiers fire from the standing position.  In the second picture, you can see the pain on the IA soldier's face from the heat of the barrel...

Hopefully, we'll see much more from SSG Klika.
