Our tipsters have sent us a copy of the military’s logo for last week’s satellite-shooting operation. Behold!
Sure, the military may be calling the effort “Operation Burnt Frost,” in public. But, as this logo reveals, there’s a different monicker, behind closed doors. Amazingly, the armed forces appeared to have crowdsourced the name of the operation to… all of you.
