Follow me on:

Two centuries ago, British troops fought their way into the U.S. and burned the Capitol in the War of 1812. Now, a contingent of U.S. troops is bound for Britain looking to set a few fires of its own, according to an Army Times article.

As the world’s eyes turn to London with athletes from 204 countries mustering there for the London 2012 Olympic Games, Team USA will field a platoon of military competitors all looking to forge silver and gold in the heat of competition.
