When things work as they should.

In a post below, regarding the Canadian flyer now being credited with taking Rommel out of the Battle of Normandy at a crucial moment, one of the commenters asked, "What the hell happened?" - meaning to the Canadians and their warriors.

A serving Canadian allowed as to how they were still around, and still serving, just not as obvious. True.

Here's some proof. In the form of a kevlar noodle-wrapper damaged in a suicide bombing in Kabul on 27 January, 2004. The Canadian noodle wrapped in this helmet is happy that it worked as intended.
