Some say life in the Marine Corps is not so bad. But of course, most of them have never spent time on deployment in Iraq or Afghanistan.
U.S. Marines watch a film on a laptop computer charged using a broken-down all-terrain vehicle as a generator, in Helmand province, southern Afghanistan, on Aug. 26. The Marines of 3rd Platoon who live inside the mud-walled compound of PB-302 face Taliban militants who regularly attack the base from multiple directions with grenades, sniper rifles and AK-47s.
