Sorry, we don´t want to fight, we want peace, to be honest. But if someone wants to come here, there´s a price to pay. Practically all men over 18 have been in the army, 6-11 monts, NCO´s 12 months, Officer pupils 12 months, and I got Guerilla warfare practice the first three months, then Medical officer school 3 months, and the rest either treating sick soldiers or here and there practicing how to situate in the area light medical treatment tents, and I was treating heavily wounded soldiers a short way back from the front, surgery etc, and I was in charge where everything medical is situated.
In Bosnia I found it funny that soldiers with hangover did not get painkiller, they were in bed the whole day with blood presure measured and their condition checked. We gave them a pain killer or two and kicked back to their unit.
In the Army on Monday everybody tried to avoid the 30 kms march. We had usually some 350 patients, of which 320 we returned to their unit. However, going to doctor meant that they need not go to the march.
Funny, I was our unit´s best Suomi-mg man, grenade-launcher 20 mm mg shoote, especially good with 12.7 mm Sergei MG and my medical unit was the best 80 mm mortart. The latter I liked, 5 grenades, hold the gun, and in 20 seconds all grenades hit the same place. No running enemy, or you´re dead. But I am senior medical officer, I don´t fight.
However, I want to say in Finland we don´t have usually guns at home, only hunters and those that compete. But we have the schools to return fire in case of a war with good percentage.Our power is the guerilla warfare. We attack flanks, your backside, from the front. You never know where from.
Denmark lost some 40-50 men in Afganishtan during their duty time, Finland 2 or three. we know what we do. And we have 200,000 lakes and all forest. And we rule it all. .

I wonder who drew the short straw for this test ?
