    That's not to mention the white name tapes and white undershirts screaming 'Look at me'!

    Then too, there's the rank insignia sticking out like dogs' ____.

    First pic looks like either East Range or the Kawailoa's training area. Second pic looks like any one of the LZ's on East Range. Training area looks the same just different uniforms, weapons and helicopters. Go figure Joe's been humping those gulches for years.
