How does this happen?

Did they just forget to bring their map or GPS?

They were probably looking for a bar or restaurant. The Swiss army is a Militia army, the soldiers go for refresher training for 3 weeks every 2 years. While in the American Army if you say jump they'll say 'Yes, sir, how high, sir' in the Swiss army you'll hear something like 'What? Why should we?' or 'See this emblem here on my shoulder. Says artillery, we don't jump' A lot of people refer to it as the 'Green Holidays':)
But hey, we've Fighter Jets (F15 I think) that can cross the whole of Switzerland in a few seconds! Isn't that great?

You guessed it: they went yodling on Heidisteig, northeast of Sargans. They descended to Maienfeld to sample the Maienfelder (an excellent wine, which is Swiss of course) and then returned to their quarters in Landquart. Over the old road, to keep up with the bends.
