U.S. Soldiers Nearly Drained Iceland Of Its Supply Of Beer

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene with a party foul of national proportions. Recently, several thousand U.S. soldiers made a pit stop in Iceland on their way to a NATO exercise. And while there, they almost drained the entire country of its supply of beer. Local breweries reportedly had to rush emergency reserves to the thirsty mob. A local blogger wrote that barkeepers were, quote, "fighting an overwhelming force" - an impressive showing but likely not an official part of the NATO exercise. It's MORNING EDITION.
