What's the craziest military story you can tell?
"In 99 in Bosnia one of my countrymen (who did not speak a shred of English) was in charge of refueling when a column of American Humvees showed up at our base and asked to be supplied with 'gazolina.' He filled them with DIESEL because in Italian 'diesel' is commonly called 'GASOLIO' .....
In the end the Americans had to continue on foot (in a very hostile area of Sarajevo) and we went to retrieve one of the most famous American corps crippled by Italian corporal who did not speak English !!!
The lesson learned was that the ignorance of a single man can be very dangerous!"

Tactical helmets have come a long way in recent years and so have helmet covers.
Here are the top reasons why despite rails, shrouds and integrated comms, helmet covers are more relevant now than ever.
We traveled 12 miles up the road to our good friends at IWI to check out the latest version of their Dan .338 Sniper Rifle.
Sizing a military helmet remotely can be difficult but sizing an Ops Core helmet can be even more tricky and confusing for several reasons.
