Soldiers

 

Czech Castle Guard

     The Prague Castle sits on a hill overlooking the beautiful city of Prague in the Czech Republic. This soldier stands guard outside the castle and is clearly keeping his eye on me.

ROK Soldier

     South Korea's official name is the Republic of Korea. Their military troops are known as ROK soldiers. This photo was taken inside one of the blue conference buildings that straddle the border between North and South Korea in the Demilitarized Zone. This soldier and I are technically standing on the north side of the border and he is guarding the "doorway to the north" just behind his left shoulder.

Guarding the North

     This North Korean soldier keeps watch over the Demilitarized Zone from his side of the border. Notice how poorly this soldier's uniform fits. It is an indication of North Korea's economic troubles.

On Guard

     I enjoy watching the changing ceremony of the Horse Guards more than the Buckingham Palace guards. It's more accessible for viewing with far less spectators.

Kazakh Kop

     In Almaty, Kazakhstan this police officer patrols the ramp at the airport.  Although he is not a soldier his uniform was enough to get him on my soldier page.  I love his tall hat.  It looks like he's wearing a skateboard ramp on his head.
