March 2009

commando 008.jpg

WWII Polish LHG members Rich Holliday, Chris Moore, Chris Petronis and Mike Hernendez were invited to the invitational tactical at Newville, PA the weekend of March 7-8. Due to the historical setting of the scenario we brought out our Polish commando impressions. A good time was had by all despite some aching muscles the next day. Special mention should be made to Mike who ran full bore into barbed wire around 21:30 on Saturday night. Luckily his uniform was not damaged but he did suffer cuts to his knees and wrist. They will heal, the uniform wouldn't.
