The first pictures are taken on a Bradley Fighting Vehicle known to us as a Bradley.
The ones taken on the stairs are in front of the Battalion HQ with the crest of the 1/120th CAB in the background. Home base out of Wilmington, N.C. (by the airport).
The last ones are by a palm tree on base, trying to look as beachy as possible.
