We are fortunate in having some of our military's best in our backyard. One of the Rangers training camps is located here and they have an open house every year where they demonstrate all the amazing things they do. Here are some peeks.

I found out that getting photos when you are standing in the rotor wash of a hovering Blackhawk helicopter is a massive challenge!

Thanks. I'm not sure I really have an element myself, but these are some of the more fun to do. Word of advice though, don't have a camera held up to your eye when an artillery simulator goes off real close. The rubber does not feel good against an eyeball when you all of a sudden jump!

Have to agree with you, would love to try most of this myself.
