    Seriously if you go, send us some of your patches.

    Yeah, in eighth grade we went on a week fieldtrip to Rjukan, where the powerplant is located. Did the "resistance route" and then visited the museum.

    I imagine it went something like this: "Hey, you, smear some camo on yourself and grab that radio. I need a photo!"

    I will see what I can do about patches

    It was taken during a NATO winter exercise. These guys were at a checkpoint, so they wanted to be seen, so they wouldn't get run over
