Doesn't the green uniform look strange
Just to mix things up a bit...
Before we shipped to Iraq, we did almost two months of training at Ft. Dix, NJ. This was intended to reclass us from Infantry to MPs, and catch us up on any of the vital skills that may have gotten soft during our National Guard time. It was a little slice of basic training, but for old guys. It was practically worthless, at least for my Company. Nothing we learned at Ft. Dix applies in Iraq.

Here I am after the NBC (Nuclear Biological Chemical) range. All the training we do on this subject would not save us if any of it were to happen for real, but it's fun to pretend.
