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!"

Ciao!
