yesterday the LAPD honored one of their own who had fallen in Afghanistan. apparently the 20 yr veteran was in a vehicle like this when it ran over an IED and the explosion killed him.
the marine who drove this vehicle up from oceanside said that its not a tank, that its a light armored reconnaissance vehicle. he says it weighs 14 tons and can go 80 mph. i said man you must have gotten here in an hour. he said, “no 5 hours, we went during rush hour.”
since i dont know squat about military stuff, i just said, “cool grenade launchers” and thanked him for protecting america.
since it was a funeral it meant that you could park in the streets. but only if youre a cop.
