A Norwegian news outlet posted a call-out to the 16,000 international troops participating in Exercise Cold Response for “selfies” from the field, and the results are pretty amazing.

The news site VG Nett posted 51 selfies they received from troops training above the Arctic Circle. They got pictures of fur hats, bearded men, berets and some bloodied mock casualties in return.

About 440 North-Carolina based Marines are in Norway for Cold Response, a handful of which threw their own selfies into the mix. Most of the troops are smiling despite the frigid climate and reports of icy rain.

The 11-day exercise wrapped up on Friday.
