Godspeed, Lance

A quick break for some straight news. My brother sent me an update on his stepson, the Marine, recently:

Lance Corporal Brugger is in town on leave prior to his going back to Iraq in about 2 weeks. ... Just after he returns to Iraq he's supposed to be promoted to Corporal.

I expect the L/CPL will be leaving in the next few days, if he hasn't already. During his first OIF tour, he was stationed at Fallujah. I hear he's going to be stationed near the Syrian border during this second tour, so we're all hoping he returns safely once more.

Good luck and Godspeed, Lance.

We now return to our regularly scheduled nonsense.

This is NOT AC-130 video...it is from a helicopter. An AC-130 orbits a target, so the aspect continually changes around a target.

This video isn't from an AC-130 -- it's from a helicopter. It's been floating around the internet with an erroneous attribute to the AC-130. There are videos out there from AC-130s, but this just is not one of them.
