Here is a photo of me in the desert back in 1991, I am digging a hole to store stuff below grade so it stays cooler during the hot days.
Great picture. I may look for some of my Desert Storm pics and from Iraq and Afghanistan too. They're in a box somewhere and finding them won't be easy.
Lead by example is the way of the Army. That's why I'm combat situations Jumpmasters are the first out the door when parachuting into a hot LZ.
I was an SFC back during Desert Shield / Desert Storm. But that was in SF so I was doing a lot of doing and not so much ordering due to the high rank structure. After all, an O3 leads a 12 person team.
