US Marines were given some time off from running drills to play a game with some young children recently, but it certainly didn’t look like leisure time.
The game they naturally chose was war, and with the exception of using Nerf guns as opposed to live arms the Marines turned up in full combat gear.
Riot shields, armour vests, helmets, face paint, they donned the lot as they attempted to defeat the children of Fleet Activities Yokosuka, Japan, in battle.

Instead the battle was deemed a draw and everyone went home happy.
That looked like an awesome experience for all involved.
