In the photo below, taken from the National Guard’s Photos – Michigan Recruit Sustainment Program page on Facebook, we see a group of Michigan National Guard trainees wearing blue helmets.
United Nations soldiers also wear blue helmets.
The fellows in the photo (and two young women) are not wearing UN helmets, though. They are Black Diamond helmets. Black Diamond manufactures sports gear, not equipment for the United Nations.
However, the color of the helmets is awfully strange, some would say coincidental.
Is it coincidental? You decide.
