I just stumbled on a article, where a penguin was made Brigadeer in the Norwegian King's Guard. All military veterans and active service have anecdotes of
individual promotions defying all logic. I therefore propose we make Wegian lord protector moderator of the northern realms.

Nothing new here.  I was a corporal in the Marines but was outranked by a dog.

I had to bust my derrier qualifying on all USCG small craft up to the 44' MLBs to receive my coxswains pin and a year for the Surfmans. The service was pushing
female enlistments; and we had some great ones. But I took a ensign out for afternoon patrol, she kinda sorta took the helm for 10 minutes and got us soaked by a starbord breaking wave off the Farallons near SF. She was out of ROTC in Ohio. I wass a LITTLE concerned when , in all seriousness she asked me which ocean we were on.We came in and the District commandant handed her a coxswains pin.

At least least in the Marines the dog was outranked by a horse.

There were some pretty famous mules and horses who served in combat. The recurring fate of our wardogs is a disgrace. Back on thread, I am going to call the Consulate and demand Wegian's immediate promotion, his own mountain peak ( they just gave one to Finland) and a lucrative defense spending contract to Phil for lighted pens.

Sir Nils Olav inspecting troops of the royal guard, of which he is Colonel-in-Chief, in 2008.
The King's Guard adopted the penguin as their mascot in 1972 during a visit to Edinburgh for the annual Military Tattoo. The tradition has stuck and each time the Guards visit the city, Nils Olav is promoted and invited to inspect the troops once more.

What does Sir Olav do if he doesn't approve?  He seems to be eyeballing one of the soldiers as if there were an errant thread on their uniform....

It's those M1 Garands. Norwegian Krags are more fun.
