We’ve been summoned to appear in front of the commandeur of KFOR in beautiful Prizren. Once there, the general asked us what we wanted from him. We didn’t know since we were the ones to be invited in the 1st place and so we talked about Kosovo. We were informed, that the region is like a thickening skin on top of a pudding. I don’t remember any specifics (probably due to a severe hangover) but asked my colleague with vast military experience what it is, that qualifies you for a commanding position.
His andswer: “Never stand out.”
