Basically yeah. Shit I'm not 6'2+

Those pants look really hard to pull off I know I couldn't wear those.

pretty cool Futuresailors. Would like even more with less shiny shoes, maybe with boots or futuristci (yet beaten up) sneakers.

You look like your avatar :)

This is cool. I would like to put something together, but I'm not sure that I have anything that really qualifies as military-esque. Maybe just use a lot of green?

or should I attempt something postapocalyptic/futuristic instead?

 

and I'm assuming you can only submit one fit, correct?

 

I wanna see some VIKING steeze

Not a fan of cultures of violence and I don't want to look like it. That goes for gang inspired shit like RO does too.

That was ammo being destroyed? Why? Enemy cache?

Probably cheaper than bringing it back/transporting.

Ammo that is unserviceable. These rounds were from the 70s IIRC and the powder had degraded to where the round would be ineffective and cause malfunctions. In this picture you can see this detahseet is from 1967. There are a lot of Cold War and Vietnam munitions still around that are expiring.

Although that stuff was just old, we disposed a lot of stuff that they didn't want to ship home for whatever reason like TOW missiles and MCLCs (these are big metal boxes filled with a 1,700 lb rope of c4 blocks attached to a rocket. You shoot them out into a minefield to clear a path and they are as awesome as they sound).

Kind of hard to go military-free when even something as benign as your local Best Buy employee's khakis have their roots in desert bloodshed.
