The custom M9 pulling guard duty in the middle of the desert on a broken down truck. The order was to "fix bayonets."

If you guessed we have our own correspondent over in the land of the big desert sending back photos of Marines with knives you guessed correct! The one Marine common in all the photos is our son Jake. He searches out fellows wearing odd knives just to take pictures for us!
