And for those of you who don't know what those tubes are, those are 82mm mortar rounds that Mr. "Soon to Be Spending The Rest of His Short-Ass Life in Pain" has packed up there. They won't range as far as our 81's, but they will get the job done.
I sure hope the guy that took this picture doesn't plan on riding around with them to cover their "operation." I do hope he gives them to the mortar team that replaced the one that used to shoot at us (the one we sent to find their virgins shortly before being relieved). I left a 120mm mortar to an American mortar team that relieved me at my firebase; and that team was good...
