I don't normally post about actual Army news, but did you hear about this explosion that happened at Ft. Bragg last night?
I'm not going to lie and say that it doesn't make me a little nervous. I am used to hearing the rolling, thunder-like sounds and having my walls shake as much as the next milSpouse, but when there are reports that injuries are involved, that scares me.
I guess we can be thankful for the fact that it happened in the US, during a training exercise and not overseas, during the "real thing." The fact that medical attention was available and there weren't actually enemies waiting to take advantage of any weakness is a blessing, in my opinion. If this had occurred in theatre, the 10 injuries would most likely be a lot more serious and in some cases, fatal.
I just get nervous thinking about the fact that as spouses, we're used to our significant others going out to the field for training exercises, but we don't necessarily expect them to actually get injured on home soil.
What are your thoughts?
