    Let me see if I can channel the old section chief

    With a straight face " Damn Gunny (Investigating officer) Its those POS skinny tires. They bounce like crazy even on the hardball, didn't have a chance on this tank trail. That left side hit that big hole back there and she went airborne sideways. I saw it in the rearview but before the driver could stop the darn thing had flipped. I could understand it if we were speeding, but my driver was only going ____ (insert safe off road speed here). I think one of the tires must have lipped one of those ruts after she started bouncing. And she flipped. If my driver hadn't been paying attention, this thing could have flipped the truck.

    You know someone from _________ (eng/base maint/or Range Control) should have their ass handed to them for not grading this trail." (maybe throw in a few comments about the spade/leg locks being loose, but you showed it to one of the "Gun Docs" and he said it wasn't a problem so I didn't put it on the weekly PM sheet)


    So how did I do?

    I could do better if I was more familiar with the weapon. That was 198 excuses.


    No I've never flipped a 198. I did flip a waterbull though.

    We usually use a machine gun to achieve grazing fire...

    That is just about perfect. Its always been my suspicion that there is some secret TM which has "templates" to cover sworn statements for all such eventualities. Its just so amazing how they all have such a striking similarity ha ha. Especially like the comment about showning something to teh Gun Docs but they said it was Ok hence no mention on the PM Sheet. Love it.

    I recall my days at Range Control Ft. Sill. January and we had a good rain going for a few days. Anybody that knows Sill would know that most of the range roads have low water crossings built through virtually all of the creeks. The III Corps Arty commander is up in his bird playing games with one of the Lance battalions on post. He's looking for their missile carriers (built like boats btw) and they're trying to alternately hide and move. One of the carriers attempts crossing a creek at high speed. Water's up and this carrier slams into 3 1/2 to 4 ft. of heavy, roiling water pounding against its side. Goes in, pops up and is immediately washed downstream on its side about 150 yards before lodging in a stream eddy. All small arms on board are lost. Vehicle isn't recovered until the rains subside and they can get a crane safely up to the bank and extend it out over the vehicle. Crew lived (barely) but they medevaced one of the crewmen who nearly drowned.

    Bad exercise. A Brig. General had these guys all geeked up with nobody paying attention to road/stream conditions. Usually it's the summer when flash flooding is dangerous there but this should have been obvious.

    No story to tell really. Cutting across a field with a 1/2 full waterbull.

    Left tire of the waterbull hit a big rock. CoG shifted when the trailer went on one wheel. So flipped.

    Contrary to rumors at the time, there was NOT a student in the waterbull when the incident occurred.

    I flipped a fuel GOER in Hohenfels in 1984... Central corridor by Old Baldy watching that bad boy bounce across frozen hummocks of mud. That bad boy snapped right at the attenuated link. Took 2 TPUs to pump it out and 2 M88s and a lowboy to recover.

    No one hurt and I left the scene like Carl Spengler when the Bishop got hit by lightning!

    "Ever get to bring the wife/girlfriend out onto teh gunline?"

    Firing Battery Branch of Weapons Dept. USAFAS brought our secretary out on the M101A1 marine gunline during a school shoot once.

    Not good. Cost her the tip of an index finger somehow in the breech. I was still on post but no longer there. In fact I was ETSing the military and serving my last six months as Ft. Sill's Range Control Officer. Needless to say, we were called to the firing point.

    I nearly ended up the AR 15-6 officer but was excused by the Chief of Dept. Of Plans & Training because of prior relationships with all.
