I know this isn't Tumblr; I just thought today is as good a day as any to post gratuitous photos of myself.
That's me in December 2004 at the Security and Escort Battalion, Philippine Army shooting range in Fort Bonifacio. The partially obscured shooter in camo is our friend J. Between and behind us, coaching, is The Colonel.
The photo above, meanwhile, was taken just last August. We were at the same range, at the shooting bay on the other side of that wall in the first picture.
That August shoot was extra memorable because if I heard correctly, we met a real hero: Philippine Medal of Valor awardee Maj. Gen. Arturo Ortiz, who was inspecting the SEBn shooting range after being appointed commanding general of the Philippine Army in late July.
