US Military descends upon Iceland like beer-drinking locusts.

God bless our military.

U.S. troops landed in Iceland last week ahead of the start the largest NATO military exercise since the Cold War, and apparently, they left their mark in the most appropriate way possible: by drinking every last beer in the nation’s capital.

A significant number of bars in downtown Reykjavík were forced to make emergency beer runs under the onslaught of thirsty American sailors and Marines in town for the start of Trident Juncture 18, Iceland Magazine reports.

Via @jaredbkeller.  I’m particularly proud of the fact that our troops made sure to drink all the local stuff instead of the imports.  That shows a laudable willingness to try to learn about the positive aspects of other cultures; if you’re going to visit a foreign land, for the love of God, eat and drink their food.  And, sure, go to the local McDonalds, just to see how it’s different from home.

PS: More troops are coming.  GET MORE BEER.
