Instead of the usual shamrock or leprechaun, I thought on this St. Patrick’s day it would be to have something that really reflects Ireland.
Thirty-four million Americans claim Irish ancestors, mine were from Ulster in Northern Ireland.

But they don’t just march around in those impressive uniforms, they are after all a military force.
