With a message saying "What's our redecorating budget like these days?"

Great photo. I do love the ease with which the one guy is just laying down. Is he reading Harper's Weekly or Grant's Memoirs?( :bomb: just kidding)
He is reading the other guys text message!

Perhaps the guy standing up is updating his status on Facebook and tagging the whole company/regiment ... "We got hit!"

Finally! Proof of time traveler! He's texting!
:rofl:

Somehow I missed this up to now. Are you sure the tent had been shelled? What if he had gone berserk because he couldn't get net?

No, seriously, I like these shots that show people how they really were, not lined up for a photo shoot, solemn and stern-faced ...
Thank you for sharing!
