Here's a picture of me following a mop up operation in Colombia last April.

I'm the second in the pack, holding the Kalashnikov.

Lots of fun. Well, actually, it wasn't. It rained alot but we got what we needed done. I know it's not the safest job, but freelance work pays okay and it's all I really know.

LOL... no, it was an actual mop up operation that occuredthis past April. I get alot of flak from what I do, and I get alot of "yeah, right..." comments. But, like I said, it is what I do best and I guess everyone needs to make a living.

My grandpa did it, my dad did it, and Inow I do it.

No no no, I didn't take offense at all. I'm not in the forces, I onlydo contract work with a company in the US and some employers overseas. I've never been in the armed forces, nor will I ever be. I guess you could say I only fight in private wars around the world.

Honestly, it's not peace keeping or anything. It's about dealing with other peoples' problems.

Well, let's just say that whoever pays the highest price, I'll be there depending onwhat the politics are and if the higher powers permit the operation. Mercenary, soldier of fortune, call it what you please. It's what I do for a living. I have definately been called worse.
