"I heard these tiny cry’s, and following the sounds I found the kitten, but no mother. The pictures title is( life and Death)"


I served in UNDOF missions from 2004 to 2005

in the Golan Heights ... "

"I have been in the Army since 2008, and still serving to this day. I have been to war, and despite the wife disagreeing, I still long to go back. There is a sense of comradery and belonging to war that still sticks with me today. You can take the soldier out of a war, but you can’t take the war out of a soldier. Eventually there will be a day that I will need to take off my boots, but until then...I will keep pushing forward and fighting for my Constitution, and the Oath that I made."

"I'm an old veteran from the United States. I attained the rank of Staff Sergeant in 4 years in the U.S. Air Force from 1968 to 1972. My job description was Aircraft Avionics Technition. My war zone service was in South Vietnam in 1970 at Cam Ranh Bay in the II Corps area and Can Tho in the IV Corps area in the Mekong Delta region. There, the mission of our squadron was to supply Army, Marines, and Special Forces troops in forward ground combat areas with food, supplies, munitions and ordinance, combat gear, and fuel. Our aircraft were C7A "Carabou" cargo planes which are capable of touch and go landings on short dirt strip runways in ground combat areas. I remember vividly the hot sweltering heat and humidity of Vietnam as we performed  our duties. But we adapted adapted as strong young people do. The people of South Vietnam were very friendly, cordial, and accommodating. It was nice to interact with them and learn about their culture. So I was a young puppy back then. I have fond memories of my youth to recall and be grateful for. My name is Gary Snipes. I am familiar with the quality and handcrafted workmanship of Falco Holsters. I proudly own a Falco Hyena holster custom made for a light bearing gun to fit one of my pistols with a weapons light. I will be ordering another for a different light bearing pistol. 
Attached are a few pictures of me when I was a young puppy in Vietnam 1970. Also a picture of a C7A Carabou cargo aircraft that served in South Vietnam."

"I used to be a soldier (1992). But I remember those years with joy and pride."
