From that tear-inducing Michael Yon dispatch linked to below:
Young American soldiers wrestle like this, too. But not nearly as often, and never with quite the same ferocity. American soldiers don’t usually beat each other as hard during the wrestling matches. The Brits actually punch each other in the body, while American soldiers sometimes choke each other into unconsciousness. It’s the young soldiers’ way of saying they love each other.
Yes, very European in their sense of order. God bless the Death-or-Glory Boys.
