Quote from: milos on January 13, 2017, 07:58:01 PMLol, Solar, somehow I missed to see your photos from the first page by now, don't know how, and when you said you have served in Korea, I figured out it was during the Korean War, and that you must be over 80 by now, ha ha.I saw images of me I posted before are not visible anymore, because Imageshack has quit free photo hosting, so I have decided to show some other, which I am kind of proud of. I hope they will be visible from Flickr. It is me serving 1 year of compulsory military service in a signal corps, from March 2000 to March 2001, pictured in April of 2000, in the city of Podgorica, Montenegro, which is now another country. My sister took them with a simple 8 mm film photo camera, so they are of low technical quality. We didn't have another photo camera at that time, because of selling our old Praktica, don't know why they sold it anyway.This is pictured while we were taking the military oath. During the practice few days before, someone from behind me crashed my watch with his bayonet, and I was angry, but it died to protect my arm, lol. I am in the first row, second from the right.And this is me with my aunt.I was fantasizing of a military career, but I had some dispute with my captain after the first month, just before taking this oath, he insulted me for something that was not true, and so I didn't speak to him for the rest 11 months, and therefore couldn't have asked to remain in the military as a professional soldier.
Quote from: milos on November 02, 2018, 08:27:37 AMOMG, I can't believe my photo is still the newest, I feel kind of embarrassed. That was an old photo of me, here is a new one, I took some hiking in the mountains at the end of August.So that the internet sees me before I lose all hair, lol.
Quote from: Solar on November 02, 2018, 10:37:01 AMI'd post a new one, but I just keep getting younger and better looking. The pics I posted are, I think at least 8 or 10 years old, and I never take selfies and the wife sees me everyday, so I don't have any at all to post, but if we get the snow I expect, she'll probably take a bunch of me on the dozer clearing the road, if I can find it, the road, that is.
