If you’re not in New Orleans, how can you possibly celebrate Mardi Gras? Ask the enterprising Cajuns from the Louisiana National Guard who brought Mardi Gras to Iraq…with a few makeshift floats, beads and masks.

It’s nice to see the troops forget about dust, guns and explosions for a little while to enjoy some home-style revelry, isn’t it?
And listen, if these guys can turn a dusty little patch of Iraq into “Mardi Gras Party Central” just imagine what you can do here at home. So get celebrating already!
