This photo was taken in Kahndari Market(the city arround Abu graihb) West Bagdhad. I saw this kid PERSONALLY while on a mounted patrol. I just HAD to take his picture. And that kid got HOOKED UP with as much pougey bait as we could muster.

:thumbup: Reminds me when I was in Tokyo July 4, 1976, America's 200th Birthday, all the Japanese kids were wearing Happy Birthday America "T" shirts.

Im not sure the kid in this photo knew what it said on his shirt. I called a halt to our convoy and all the guys in my truck jumped out quick. I think he was kinda scared at first. But we were really cool to him, (we were always cool to kids.) and he relaxed. Our whole squad kept pointing at his shirt saying "coolish zien"(very good) but Im still not sure if he got it. finally my Sawgunner rolled up his sleve to reveal his matching EGA tatoo. the kid looked like he was amazed that we had the same picture on our bodies as he had on his shirt.

Like I said before, he got HOOKED UP with free stuff
