The military of one of the NATO countries were left without panties and socks

Norwegian conscripts are now required to return their underwear after completing military service for future recruits to use as the army grapples with stockpile depletion due to COVID-19.

The Guardian writes that Norway, which guards NATO’s northern borders and borders Russia, annually conscripts about 8,000 young men and women into military service and until recently allowed demobilized conscripts to leave the barracks with underwear issued to them.

But the pandemic has seriously hampered the flow of supplies due to factory closures and transport problems, causing the Norwegian military to ask conscripts to donate underwear, including bras and socks.

While initially voluntary, it has now become mandatory.

“Now that we’ve decided to reuse this part of the kit, it helps us … We don’t have enough stocks,” said Defense Logistics spokesman Hans Meisingset.

“Textiles are washed, cleaned and checked. What we are distributing is in good condition, ”he added.
