Mardi Gras with the Troops


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!
