Re: Identifyiing CS uniform
- Thanks again, Martin. Mountain infantry seems appropriate given the mountainous terrain we come from.
I am in Arizona warming up for some mountain hiking in the Carpathians this May. I want to head from the tri-corner border by Nova Sedlica to Medzilaborce. It seems like a scenic route to take and not so popular, but full of history from the last century. It will be a different kind of challenge. I wish only that I had timed it to coincide with another beginner Slovak course in country. I am ready for it again.
