A platoon of reservists from the 455th Engineering Co. took a walk down a street in Hayden, Idaho, last month and made a right turn into the blogosphere.

Out there, they inadvertently fan the flame for folks worried that any minute now, the gummint’s coming to get your guns, yank down your  Stars and Stripes, and make you put a hand on the Koran to swear allegiance to the New World Order.

That wasn’t where the soldiers of the 455th were headed when they left the Hayden Reserve Center during their one-weekend-a-month obligation on Feb. 8. They were basically trying to make do, after the heavy snow forced them to cancel the scheduled exercise, and their company commander decided to go to Plan B.
