Greg Perry in the US Army, 1990

So here’s a poor scan of me back in my Army days. No, it’s not taken in the Middle East – that’s Fort Irwin, California. I was attached to OPFOR at the National Training Center. We dressed up as Soviet soldiers (back when there still was a Soviet Union) and even our equipment was mocked up to look like Warsaw Pact stuff. OPFOR routinely kicks the butt of visiting units. It’s not surprising – those guys knew every inch of that place. It was a fun time for me, even though we spent much of it installing a triple-strand concertina fence from one mountain top down across the valley to the next mountain top, then moved down the valley about a mile or so and did it again.
