Force Protection issues overseas.

This is what our boys overseas get to deal with every day.

No matter how beautiful a woman may be, some man somewhere is sick of her sh!t.

Re: Force Protection issues overseas.

Why would you make it so obvious?

That looks like snow and a civilian vehicle, any details?

Maybe Bosnia. They have snow.

Bikes and women - both have nice curves.

Re: Force Protection issues overseas.

The original email message has the senders information removed, I would imagine for security purposes. This is an email making it's way around the Air Force email system concerning protection while travelling off base.

A lot of the Air Force's vehicles are "civilian" looking due to travel off base. I would almost bet that greater than 75% of the gov. fleet are civilian looking ... even overseas due to a higher need to travel into urban areas inconspicuously (sp?).

No matter how beautiful a woman may be, some man somewhere is sick of her sh!t.

Re: Force Protection issues overseas.

Just Lucky it was placed in such an obvious place.

Do unto others, before some prick does it to you!
