We just had an explosive incident at work. It may sound bad but everything is cool now. Could've been WAY worse though. There was a crew loading cluster bombs (big bang followed by a bunch of little big bangs) onto trailers and the proximity fuse hit the mast on the forklift. The housing of the fuse got cracked. Eveyone had to evacuate the area until EOD (explosive ordanance dispossal) determined the bomb safe. So they came out and determined it safe and removed the fuse so they can blow it up. Just a little bit of action at work today I felt like sharing. This wasn't as bad as when some dude dropped a live missile off of a 40 footer.

Man, that's just gotta make for a lot of tightly knit starfish....

I'm glad to hear it wasn't worse! :D Need to get one of those "I'm EOD, if you see me running you should be too" shirts

Leave it to the Airforce to do something like that! :dthumb: :dthumb: :cheers: :lol:

Army don't do nothing like that! You can even ask DJ for confirmation on that one! :whistle:

I have more respect for the Air Force than the Army.
airforce, marines, navy, army, national guard, then coast guard is my priority levels of respect.

Why respect one more than the other??? No matter what they are out there putting their @$$e$ on the line to protect all of us. Army, Navy, AirForce Marines, they are all Number 1 in my book!!!!

You have been exposed to just the Air Force. Being in a family to it, you are drawn more to it then the rest. I was raised in a Army family. My father was in the Army, both grandfathers and even back further were all in the Army. Hell...look to the left and you will see I was in the Army. I have been all around the world and trained with almost every branch there is. I have even trained with other countries and there branchs they have. Me coming from an all Army background would never come off with a statement close to your about the Army better then the rest or I have more respect for them compared to the rest.

We all do the same thing and that is fight for our country. What I am going to suggest is that if you have never put on a uniform and fought for this country or helped serve...don't make statements like that.

I wasn't saying one is better than the other! I do have respect for all the branches, I realize they are all fighting for our country. My statement was towards Graff he led me to believe that the army was better then the air force with the comment "Leave it to the air force to do something like that! Army don't do nothing like that!"

If you look at the end of his statement..he is using the " :whistle: " icon.....him and i both know that that would have never happen with the Army. He's right... we would have just said the hell with it and blown it up. :lol: :lol:
