According to Newsweek, more than 6,000 U.S. soldiers stationed in Iceland pretty much drank the capital city dry during a NATO exercise this past weekend.

Military personnel around the world are headed to Norway, Sweden and Finland for the Trident Juncture 18, considered to be NATO’s biggest military exercise since the Cold War. During the trip however, U.S. troops made a pit stop in Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavík and drank local bars and restaurants out of all the beer, forcing local breweries to deliver emergency barrels to bars across the city.

NATO’s biggest military training exercise since the Cold War and what are the brave men and women of the United States military doing? They’re doing what they do best. Kickin’ ass and taking names on and off the battlefield.

You gotta love it.
