    No it wasn't a disrespectful way for me to pay tribute to my Cuzins and honor those that have fallen. You may not like it.....and that's your choice. But don't bring me any of this condescending BS over Military Brethren ever again.

    Yeah, being cliche is disrespectful because it's not genuine. Save it for the Hallmark cards. "Heaven needed more heros"? Seriously? What a bunch of crap. Your post was little better than Harry Reid blaming the accident on the sequestration today.

    Fact is when you send more than 3-4 rounds down the tube you start risking a cook-off, especially if it's humid. From all we know so far, maybe the rounds were old. That's not 'heaven needing more heros', that's the armory making a big mistake. Maybe the team fired off to many rounds causing a cook-off. That's not 'heaven needing more heros', that's the fire team making a big mistake. Maybe the mortar was defective. That's not 'heaven needing more heros', that's the manufacturer making a big mistake.

    Under normal conditions, mortars are safe to handle and use. This isn't divine intervention, this isn't a ray of sunshine from the heavens disrupting the laws of nature and causing a supernatural event. Someone ****ed up. This was completely preventable.

    I realize a lot of people want to resort to cliche bull**** because they're trying to cope, but the cold hard truth is this didn't have to happen, these Marines did not have to die, their deaths did not serve the greater good.

    I pray for the family and friends they left behind and the Lord their souls to keep.

    Well you do know what they say about Opinions.....Correct? Seriously get over it and in no way is it anything like what Reid did. I understand your mind can't handle it. But let me know when you want me to make it easy for you. I can speak Jive to! "Sua Sponte" Sticks.

    1. Someone didn't dig mortar pits and is going to get fired after he gets' back out of the hospital or
    2. Multiple round detonation. My thought process here is one round goes down, doesn't fire out, crew doesn't notice in the rapid fire, throws another one down the pipe out of muscle memory, both rounds go off in the tube or
    3. everything that could go wrong, did. ridiculous amounts of everything.

    One of my bosses is an old mortarman. His theory is that someone was practicing direct lay and anticipated the recoil, throwing a round up.
    If the round cooked off inside the tube, the fragments from the tube would create more lethality than what the round could create by itself.

    Right.....That's what I thought. When did you start thinking for others.

    Well with myself.....you will need to learn, adapt, and improvise.

    This is a tragedy. I was crushed to hear of this horrible accident. All those marines, dead and injured, right here on US soil. Heartbreaking.

    And to those who are ****ting on their memory for their own perverse pleasure, **** you.
