  • Puff the Magic Dragon .. 🐲💥🇺🇸
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Douglas AC-47 Spooky (also nicknamed "Puff, the Magic Dragon") was the first in a series of gunships developed by the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War. It was designed to provide more firepower than light and medium ground-attack aircraft in certain situations when ground forces called for close air support.

Puff's first significant success occurred on the night of 23–24 December 1964. An AC-47 arrived over the Special Forces outpost at Tranh Yend in the Mekong Delta just 37 minutes after an air support request, fired 4,500 rounds of ammunition, and broke the Viet Cong attack. The AC-47 was then called to support a second outpost at Trung Hung, about 20 miles away. The aircraft again blunted the VC attack and forced a retreat. Between 15 and 26 December, all the AC-47's 16 combat sorties were successful. On 8 February 1965, an AC-47 flying over the Bong Son area of Vietnam’s Central Highlands demonstrated its capabilities in the process of blunting a Viet Cong offensive. For over four hours, it fired 20,500 rounds into a Viet Cong hilltop position, killing an estimated 300 Viet Cong troops. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This photo means a lot to me..⁣
⁣
I took this photo in January 2018 while at a battalion field exercise in Germany. It was my first real opportunity to take photos of some action. I had been assigned my PAO responsibility just three weeks prior.⁣
⁣
I’m so thankful for the company of combat engineers that allowed me to get up close and personal with their training.⁣
⁣
Two weeks after posting this to our battalion Facebook page, I started receiving messages from old teammates from across the Army. “Hey, V! I saw your photo on AKO!” I had no clue it made it to the cover of the Army site. ⁣
⁣
I’ve had a few of my images posted since then..but this one is one for the ages. It’s timeless, articulates action, and is dangerous.⁣
⁣
I’m an airborne photographer and I love it. There are fewer things more satisfying than loving the work you do. ⁣
⁣
Double tap if you agree.⁣

  • Ещё в это воскресенье в порт Батуми пришёл американский эсминец Ross ⚓️. Сегодня мы решили прогуляться с утра и дойти до порта, посмотреть яхты🛥, катера🚤, корабли🛳 да и на эсминец посмотреть. Эсминец, как эсминец. 
Цель визита: подчеркнуть сотрудничество Вашингтона🇺🇸 и Тбилиси🇬🇪.
Но это ладно. Здесь интересен не политический подтекст, а люди, а точнее собака🐕. Когда мы гуляли, нам на встречу шла группа американских военных с этого корабля, среди них были 2 девушки, а также собака. Собака… Собака, Карл! Рыжий красавец, ирландский сеттер спокойно вышагивал по грузинской земле, остановился, понюхался с нашими таксами, но призыв хозяина «Терри, давай, пошли мальчик!» отвлёк его от нового знакомства.
Ребят, кто у меня тут из Америки, неужели военные могут и собак брать с собой? Но с другой стороны, не может же данная ситуация быть исключением?!

On this Sunday, American destroyer «Ross» visited the port in Batumi. Today we’ve decided to walk around in the morning and to reach the port and to look at yachts, boats and the destroyer.
The purpose of the visit is to stress the cooperation between Washington and Tbilisi.
But a political connotation is unimportant. People are interesting but rather a dog. When we were walking, we've met a group of US military from this ship among them were 2 girls as well as a dog. Dog… Red-haired Irish setter has calmly walked for a Georgian land, stopped, sniffed with our dachshunds but a call his owner has distracted him from a new meeting: «Terry, come on, let’s go, boy!».
Guys, who are from the US? Can the military take the dogs along? But on the other hand, this situation cannot be an exception?!
