I don't have too many pics, but we did have an embedded photographer team from Life Magazine with us. Here are the few pictures I have.

Yea, I lost over 100 rolls of film due to a P.O.S. camera that got sand into it yet I did not know.

I had photos from Kuwait and the highway of death but lost them when my duffle bag was stolen when I came back from Saudi.

Man that sucks. We had some troops that had really good pics from the highway of death but the fools waited to develop the film until they got back to the States. The photo development places considered the pictures "obscene" and over exposed the whole lot of pictures. :roll:
