Reader Mark G. sent me this post about Thanksgiving from Life in the Infantry: What am I thank for? Quite a bit...
There's associated photos with each item like this one:
EOD guys who would gladly dig a tiny hole in the side of a road and dig until they found the explosives buried underneath. I am slightly claustrophobic, and laying in a hole with explosives near my head would scare the crap out of me. The Air Force EOD teams with us would go out on almost every mission, and they never complained. I know that myself and my entire company is thankful they were deployed with us.
