ISAF 10 returns home
Part 2. Part 3.
I think this is the first time Danish troops have marched through Copenhagen upon their return from abroad, and judging by their rythm, I don't think Kim Jong Il would be impressed, But I am. I would have liked to have seen it. Typially the media largely ignored the event. I guess it only makes the news if Muslims kick up a fuss about it like they did in the UK. Thankfully there was none of that in Copenhagen. A few anti war protestors demonstrated but barely enough to be heard.
750 soldiers made up the Danish contingent of ISAF 10, and despite some heavy combat in Helmand and other regions, only four soldiers were killed (and two died under training prior to being sent).
