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

    The tape on the rifle is a nice idea but always got dirty quick...

    My first thought was Bear standing there in the edge of the treeline...as the choppers fly off. Up there...

    My thoughts exactly.
    We were OPFOR during "Jack Frost 75" We used USAF HH3s for transport helicopters and our over whites were filthy at the end of the exercise.

    Yes, that's the one I was on. I remember getting off the choppers up there in the scrub brush about 30 miles north of Fairbanks and pulling Ahkios up those hills with long ropes...painful... Don't remember Donnely's dome though, or the mountains in the shot. If I remember, you guys had cotton whites? Ours were nylon and would melt when you brushes a lantern or something equally hot.

    The last two pictures were taken at a completely different location. Donnelly Dome (correct spelling, my bad) is located on Ft. Greely, South East of Wainwright. We started the exercise on Ft Wainwright in all the trees and then went to Greely for EndEx. Covered a lot of territory during that time.

    Oh yes, since this is the M14icon picture of the day, we did have two M14s and a shotgun in the company.....for animal control. Sorry no pictures.

    They must have split us all up for that, I don't recall moving anywhere, but it WAS 45+ years ago. I was actually integrated in a US rifle section too. Four of us.
