Are we really not going to talk about the guy in the back who is attached to another guy’s back while spinning?
WHAT ABOUT THE GUY THAT FALLS OUT OF THE WINDOW
WHY IS IT BACK
no you guys don’t understand, not only is this the first harlem shake out there… these guys aren’t normal military. This is “Telemarkbataljonen”. They’re pretty much the Norwegian equivalent of the fucking black ops. My brother knows a guy in this battalion, and when asked what they do there, he looked my brother dead in the eye and said “That is strictly confidential”. These guys are hard as shit, which makes this even more hilarious
Uh, no, Telemark Bataljon is NOT the Norwegian equivalent to “the fucking Black Ops,” whatever the fuck that is.
Norwegian SF is Forsvarets Spesialkommando, or FSK.
Telemark Bataljon is just a mechanized infantry battalion of the Brigade Nord, though they are tasked as an Immediate Action Force for all of Norway.
Our neighbor didn’t die, he was just needed someplace else.
He took a moment that was about recognizing him and turned it into a moment to recognize everyone who was there and everyone who made it possible for him to do what he does. If you want a perfect example of why he is so fondly remembered and such a great person, it’s tough to find a better one than this.
He walked the 2 mile parade route. Two Navajo Marines are helping him with the last 1/2 mile.…
And he is “in step” too. http://www.teamm14.com/showthread.php?14121-Navajo-Code-Talker&p=88814#post88814 On the Pacific front during World War II, strange messages were picked up by American and Japanese forces on land and at sea. The messages were totally unintelligible to everyone except a small select group within the Marine Corps: the Navajo code talkers-a group of Navajos communicating in a code based on the Navajo language. This code, the first unbreakable one in U.S. history, was a key reason that the Allies were able to win in the Pacific.
At Roy Hawthorne’s school, there was one sure way to get in trouble. Hawthorned lived on the Navajo reservation in New Mexico in the 1930s and attended a school run by the US government. Students at the school were strictly forbidden to speak their native Navajo language. If they spoke anythong other than English, they would likely have their mouths washed out with soap. But Hawthorne never stopped speaking Navajo. At home and at play, he still used the language that had been passed down from one generation to the next. Years later, his knowledge of that langauge paid off for him and for his entire country. Hawthorne became a “code talker,” one of a group of about four hundred Navajos who served in the US Marine Corps during World War II. Their job was to send and receive secret coded messages.
The coder talkers invented a code based on their native language that was never broken by the enemy. The same langauge that once got Navajo children like Roy Hawthorne in trouble saved thousands of lives during the war.See More
