KUWAIT CITY (WCCO) — Minnesotan soldiers in Kuwait know how to make it feel just like home: host a polar plunge.

In the middle of the desert, soldiers from the 134th Brigade Special Troops Battalion filled a 3,000-gallon pool with water and ice.

The event helped raise funds for the Special Olympics.
