  1. I saw a bunch of tools on the ground, and some in the dirt, loose dirt. tools were: crowsfeet/ various sizes, dog bones/various sizes. some had an organizer ring which you fit through the drives (3/8 drive).

    also someone standing right by me claimed them, he show me a plastic cutout of the list of tools he owns and most of them was on the list so i gave it to him. somehow i ended up in a vehicle with him while he was showing me the proof of ownership and i ended up with a friend i have not seen in along time in the car.

    we are both military but when i saw him he was of a significantly higher rank than me, (im a sergeant and he currently is sergeant too) but he was a captain in the dream, which is not even in our rank structure. i asked him how he accomplished such thing but he never gave me an answer, he only said something along the lines of some special forces detachment and he must have done something for it. but that was my assumption. the dream was very vivid, full colors, i remember names, faces and recognize some locations(afghanistan)
