Like any social gathering in Wisconsin, I’m sure there was a fair amount of 
alcohol consumption involved.  Might ot have had any feathered hats, but I’ll

 Once when I was involved in a joint operation, on base there was a platoon

 somehow to this Schützenfest.

Unlike the US, suppressors are big in Europe.  They think it's impolite to
make so much noise.
