As a deployed guardsman I will be back in the US around August 2013.  In the mean time I am in Afghanistan working out, taking a bit of online college for fun or working a project like my profile.  

I am sure I will be uploading a photo from here.  However, there are limitations on photographing here so I will be doing the major photo update when I get back in the states.

You come off as arrogant. Don't tell them you're a tough-guy, just give an example.

I deleted the word tough..  

People judge the spectrum of confidence vs arrogance differently.  

Raised in the Midwest I thought many out around LA were arrogant.  After the culture shock wore off I noticed that my "slightly cocky" as MN friends put it was about perfect around LA.   Not too modest nor arrogant to the locals.  

I feel that many out in LA/OC are self absorbed braggarts but I also feel that there is a downside to the Midwest culture such as passive aggressiveness, not being truthful to seem nice even in situations you don't need to be and honestly most do not have a healthy confidence level. 

In LA undue arrogance is common and around MN for example many are far too modest.  What is healthy and normal is in between those two.

I would replace your second paragraph with "My tires don't have chicken strips" (Which might as well be alien to 99% of women anyways). Think of your profile kind of like a poker game... showing all your cards right away will do you no good. I'd trim it down and leave some things to be figured out.
