You're the good looking one.

Triple bonus - does anyone else have photos/videos of this event (the football, that is)?  

 

And yes, it was during the Rose Parade event...

Glen for the win!  

 

- Thanks for the higher res!

- Thanks also for the other image - I never saw this before.

- Third image - me again.  This was taken at a local photoshoot with my garrison by a professional photographer

- Last image - me again!  Good eye and yes I was a squad leader in B Company

 

Now, put all that together and it should be obvious I'm in the tight-end position, closest to the camera.

 

Even better - that image where you had the caption.  Priceless!

Man, look at that sea of FX helmets.  I think I was one of the few with a non-FX.

Wow these are great! For some reason I thought I remembered reading somewhere that folks regret not getting in touch with some of the photographers on-site, and that there were basically very few photos which Troopers later got ahold of.

That is true - I only ever saw any of these way after the fact. Alas, it was before cell phones had cameras, else we'd have a lot more.
