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.

For the unlucky ones.

Today in America we are celebrating “Memorial Day”, a day where there are many sales, and celebration of an extra day off of work. But many have forgotten the real significance of this “holiday”. It is for those who have died in the heat of battle, for those who were captured, killed, or who simply found themselves unlucky. It is for those innumerable killed and lost, some without name, many forgotten, that we mourn today. That we visit their graves and give thanks for the sacrifices they made. Please remember that next time you see an advertisement for sales on this weekend.

The AR-15 can trace its roots back to the AR-10, the first rifle mass produced for military service by the Armalite company. However, the AR-10 was not adopted by the US military, but rather the Portugese and Spanish. They would go on to use these rifles in South Africa during decolonization, as communist-backed African rebels were attempting to overthrow their European governors.
