The most "famous" thing I was involved with is a pretty well known picture:

I am standing directly to the left of the Combat Camera photographer who captured this image since I was part of the team assigned as his security element. I've encountered no shortage (literally dozens) of people claiming to either be in, or be the creator of the image. Imagine their surprise when their lie crumbles in around them.

The picture was taken during Operation Mountain Resolve back in November of 2003. The guys in the picture are some of my brothers from B/2/22 IN of the 10th Mountain Divisions 1st Brigade Combat Team. Due to the restrictive terrain this was our only option for getting detainees loaded and taken out of the area. The pilot pulling off that awesome maneuver was from the PA ARNG, had flown in Vietnam, and worked as a civilian EMS helicopter pilot at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
Some day I'd like to buy you a beer or four and see what other stories you have in there

Or maybe catch you on facebook chat after someone else has bought you a beer or four
