Every pattern within the SUBSTRATE Soldier Series has a name associated with the host country from which the pattern originated. It pays respect to and recognizes both the current and former sovereignty of that country. Many of the cities also have personal significance as well. Sydney was the first Australian city we landed in when we relocated from the United States. Prior to that, we lived in Spokane, Washington. Salisbury was my paternal grandmother's maiden name and the former capital city of Rhodesia. My wife is originally from Stuttgart, Germany.
