stopped caring at 1000
Looks like the U.S. Marines to me, not the Chinese military.

I understand your position behind the couch. Sometimes a long lens can appear to compress depth making it look a little dicier than it is.

After looking closer, those are the US Marines. Very Impressive flying

Love those Jarheads, got a good friend ex USMC pilot, they are the dogs bollocks.

We're not allowed to call them "jarheads" anymore.
They commissioned a study, and it turns out you can actually put something into a jar.

:)...OK.

Bootnecks/Booties? Although that one really applies to UK Royal Marines due to the leather collars on the old uniforms, Leathernecks the US equivalent, DD’s, Gyrenes.
