Le Mont de Sisyphe
My Photo
Location: Zurich, Switzerland

Je suis beau et intelligent. À part cela, je suis juriste helvète, libéral-conservateur, amateur d'armes, passionné d'histoire et de politique. Je suis libéral et capitaliste convaincu car je pense que c'est cela l'état naturel de l'homme. Je parle le "Schwiizerdütsch" avec un accent zurichois, j'adore la bonne musique, la bière et surtout la femme avec qui je vis.

After the "Swiss Raid Commando"

Military topics will keep returning on this blog. Not that I would specially love the army (in fact, I just like my assault rifle), but because it remains something very interesting to me. In addition, we in our Alp republic have of course a special relationship to the military. But this would lead to far to explain.

This Post is dedicated to a friend who participated to the Swiss Raid Commando. In a few words, the Swiss Raid Commando is an international high-level competition between members of different armed forces, performing in commando missions (infiltrations, exfiltrations, etc.) during a few days and nights in the western part of Switzerland. It's like "Infantry for advancers". Of course, the participants must be in a very strong mental and physical condition and must have a excellent ability of resistance (for instance, this year's weather was just awful). One of the G.O.'s (Gentil Organisateur) is Ludovic Monnerat - a swiss Lieutenant-Colonel, who is well-known to the frenchspeaking blog-community.

My friend has of course accomplished the Swiss Raid Commando successfully. The day after, he sent me this picture (Warning, quite graphic photography ;-) ).
