F-ing A, our guys got him! As this is written, it’s been less than 24 hours since Osama bin Laden received a special SEAL Team Six present right between the eyes. So there’s no way this supportive Jp staff is gonna offer anything less than the most heartfelt message of thanks and appreciation to each and every member of our military both at home and especially stationed in harm’s way overseas. Keep your support for our brave troops loud, proud, and fervent. They deserve it! And if you’re a member of our armed forces with a cool snapshot you’d like to share, email it to with “Sideways–Military Edition” in the subject line. And thanks from Jp magazine!

Big Ass-Kicking Gun
Love your mag. It’s by far the best friggin’ Jeepin’ mag around. Even though it takes a couple of months to get the “new” issues out here in Afghanistan, we still get them and read them over, and over, and over—well, you get the point. I’ve always got a copy stashed somewhere so I can entertain myself while waiting for ... well, whatever. When on convoy I keep it readily available in truck and this time I just happen to turn around and see it in the window and thought I’d take a picture of it and send it in. Next time I’ll get a pic with the big ass-kicking gun on top. Anyway, thanks for spreading all the Jeep insight. I just though you guys would enjoy the fact that your mag reaches the far ends of the earth, even on the front lines.

Sideways or Whoops?
Hey guys, here are some recent stuck pics of my current deployment. These MRAP’s weigh over 20 tons and don’t do to well in the mud. We were recovering these vehicles for two and a half days on the outskirts of a city in Northern Iraq.

Jeep Porn Addict
Attached is a photo my buddy took of me back in the states. We were killing time, waiting to get on the firing line, just prior to shipping over here to Afghanistan. My buddies here say that I look at Jeep websites more than a normal man looks at porn. I’m not sure if that’s a compliment or what.

Thank you for a great magazine,
Sfc. Jim Garcia
