I don't know if the thousand yard stare is different from person to person but I saw a few of them in my time in the air force and that guy dont really look it to me. More like he just found a box full of porn and a cheese burger sitting on top. But the picture is beautiful nontheless..

Beautiful shot! I happened to go though this 'Military' category and stumbled across your photo for the second time. I first saw it in the Special Issue of the Marines magazine a while back. Wonderful job :]
