This is a photo of Sgt Travis Flowers USMC with an Iraqi lizard caught by he & his buddies. (They let the lizard go.) Travis loves the outdoors. Travis is with Marine Wing Support Squadron 271 out of Cherry Point, N.C. currently in Al-Asad Iraq. His Mom Maurean, Stepdad & Sister Veronica miss him & can't wait to see him come home soon.
