    my unit happened to be at the under-renovations Madison Building in toledo for some MOUT training. 8 floors of poorly designed office building = awesome training


    as we were waiting outside saturday night in the street for our buses a large crowd from somewhere was going right by our block. we were all standing around with our M16s, flaks, kevlars, etc. (which was strangely exhilirating to be walking around in a city like that). ppl were going by from what turned out to be a race related riot that was larger than police expected and after being pelted with baseball sized rocks they shot tear gas canisters into the crowd.

    it was priceless as people were walking and driving by, looked over at us and :eek3:



    the "oh crap i think we're in trouble" look was gold, jerry! gold!!
