The 4th Combat Brigade, 4th Infantry Division, 2nd Battalion, 12th Regiment, Lethal Warriors, self-styled Berserkers

Neighbors of Ft Carson probably know that soldiers in the 12th Regiment, 2nd Battalion, 4th Infantry Division of the US Army 4th Ivy go by the team name of "LETHAL WARRIORS". It may boost egos, but wouldn't you think it limits their deployment options? You could hardly expect host populations to think "Lethal Warriors" would qualify as PEACEKEEPERS for example. Who welcomes lethal force to deliver humanitarian aid? Well never mind that, because it gets worse.   The 12th Regiment members are also proud that they're considered "BERSERKERS". And they know what that means. Do you? The 12th gets called in when command doesn't want one raghead left standing. Get your rage on, light up a village and leave no survivors as a lesson to the villages nearby. You've got to "embrace the carnage" to be a berserker apparently. The term is self-explanatory, and so probably the soldiers don't know berserker referred to the Norse warriors who threw themselves into a rage before laying waste their adversaries. Whether augmented by drink, drug or mental illness, the practice of deploying berserkers was OUTLAWED BY THE 10TH CENTURY. Do the soldiers of the 12th know their fighting anti-ethos has been a war
