Yes. Link. I think it is a good thing to remember that army men can actually protect people, not just kill them.

Great shot Luc. The angle is very original, the DoF is perfect, and the noise is well controlled. Congratulations on your nice finish!

Really excellent shot, I love the point of view.

Is a firefighter really military in Paris? I think you might have made top ten if you had left the word "firefighter" out of your title!

A unique perspective and crop. I feel the border adds a bit here.

A fanciful angle. That coupled with the smile -- I feel like he's going to break into song.

Fabulous pov, and the water drops on his visor are a delicious detail. Nicely caught.

Nice POV well done, i find the red poping out a bit too much.

Nice perspective and DOF control.
But the FD is not a military organisation. We didn't run around armed with anything more than a hose and a branch (firefighting nozzle). You may get military based FD's or serviceman who perform that role. I'm not robbing you of points for this however.
