This is what goes down when you give our soldiers a little bit of down time.  They describe this as a moral booster.  Makes me tired just watching it. But the question is who wins?  Watch and find out!

Prior to the departure of 31 Canadian Brigade Group (31 CBG) personnel from Camp Atterbury, Indiana, Canadian soldiers observed US National Guard soldiers playing an interesting version of the game Tug of War. 31 CBG soldiers were fascinated by the spectacle and cheered on the competitors. Finally, one young Canadian soldier dared to challenge the hometown crowd, and put national pride on the line. In this video, Master Corporal John Celestino of the Windsor Regiment, participates in a game of Tug of War with a US National Guard soldier. This version of the game builds esprit de corps and really works the leg muscles...just ask Master Corporal Celestino!
