Actually it isn't, but it was first published here in a recent slideshow. The photographer is named Ken Jasik, a Marine Combat Correspondent who was on patrol with me in Helmand, Afghanistan.
"It was when we were walking back to [the combat outpost]. It was the last stop before we got back," Jasik told me. "Lamaire says 'hey combat camera.' I look over he says "take my picture my girlfriend will love this." then he strikes the pose."
"There was no way i could not take the photo, and i love the meme."
