Photos From the Front

Here are some of America's finest seeming to be firing a hand held small (50mm?) mortar. Note the glove on the left hand of the firer and the apparent total lack of sights. Looks like a lot of fun. The near lunar like landscape is of Afghanistan where these Marines are, Camp Bastion, to be exact. Credit for the photo goes to Cpl. Pete Thibodeau.

The weapon being used looks like the 2 inch mortar the Brits used in WWII (see photo below) but I have to admit that I have no idea what it is.
