Operators Operating Operationally.

This is a military blog that features pictures and videos of weapons, vehicles, and the individuals who use them on a daily basis.
I find a portion of these pictures from military_armies. Thanks to him for letting me use so many of his great photos.
Enjoy.

I don’t follow Everyday-Cutlery, nor do I have an Instagram so I have no idea who Mayhemworks is.

The image is hyperlinked if you click on it, redirecting you to the imgur source. I found that image on gunspics.com on page 70-something.

I did a reverse image search on Google and it brings…

Here’s some shit that bothers me. Most of these content blogs that everyone follows gets their pictures from means of distribution. I don’t go grab images from a Chinese newspaper when I’m making a post about Chinese military police. I go to flickr, I go to google.

So when a content blog like myself or GRH, gets messages like this, it’s pretty frustrating. I remember getting a message very early in 2011 about some photographer thinking I stole one of his images, and was threatening lawsuit. I couldn’t even tell which one it was, because the photo that was supposedly his was so heavily photoshopped that it seemed irrational to think I even knew about his existance when I was posting it.

So don’t get aggressive. If it seems like something you or a friend posted, why not just be nice and say “hey, that’s mine, here’s my original image” or some equivilant instead of being an ass to us because we’re distributing images to you from sources all over the web.

Apparently the size limit on uploading gifs has been raised

If it works, we’ll have Vietnam War gifs inbound.

Rest in piece, Robin Williams. Damn fine actor. He was a huge supporter of the USO and volunteered every chance he got. He even insisted to being sent to the front to entertain.
