Photo spotlight: Night drop

In a photo taken through a night-vision lens, U.S. Marines Staff Sgt. Jason R. Moore and Pfc. Kurt M. Cahill push a supply bundle away from its parachute to load it onto a truck after an aerial drop in Afghanistan's Helmand province. Moore, a drop zone commander, and Cahill, a logistics embarkation chief, are assigned to the logistics operations section, 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment.

    We are so grateful to you for showing us a picture of our grandson! We couldn't believe it. We are so proud of hiim. We wish everyone could see photos of their loved ones.Thank you. Bob, you have a right to be proud of your son. I'm sure he gets a lot of praise from the men and women he serves with as my husband praised the corpsmen he served with in Korea.

    These drops are a life saver but use the wrong parachutes and its bye bye for good stuff and get stuck with MRE's. Hoorah! Yut!

    My son is a corpsman attached to 1/3 marines and I am very proud he is serving. We miss him and cannot wait until his safe return home.
