Your Turn: I Know These Guys Love Uniforms, But….


I have to admit, when this was first sent to me, I thought it was an outtake from the old Hogan’s Hero’s TV show.  Instead, according to the caption:

White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, left, and White House Counselor Dan Barlett, ride in a military helicopter wearing helmets and flak jackets for a trip from Baghdad International Airport to U.S. Embassy in the Greenzone Tuesday, June 13, 2006 in Baghdad, Iraq. Snow and Bartlett traveled with President Bush who made a surprise visit to Baghdad.

I know this pic has made the rounds, but that’s not the same as a face-off with The BAG community.

Thoughts?  Interpretations? Associations?  Projectiles?
