    There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.

    If that infantryman really is drawing a bead on a sniper, then in that position he's a sitting or kneeling duck.

    PAO puke: "Hey Joe, did you take out the sniper in that burning building over there?"

    Joe: "Sure thing, bud."

    PAO puke: "Show me how you did it so I can get a photograph. I'll put you in all the news papers. You'll be famous over night!"

    Joe: "Sure thing, bud!"

    They aren't aiming, the ones that are aiming have their heads down with cheek weld. The ones with head up are pointing. That's just a posed exit from a chopper anyway...just staged practice.

    yes exactly clearly posed but the are practicing a skill which apparently taught much like the original picture - at this point I expect we all realize to take the captions with a grain of salt.
