    Explosion at Nevada Military Site May Have Killed "Several"......

    An explosion during a training exercise at a military ammunition storage facility in western Nevada has killed "several" people, with U.S. Marines among the dead, military officials said Tuesday.



    The explosion occurred late Monday night during a Marine training exercise at the Hawthorne Army Depot in western Nevada, said facility manager Russ Collier.

    Sounds like they were training blowing up caches. Sad.

    What's heroic about blowing yourself and your pals to kingdom come? As the NRA would say, "A responsible blower-upper wouldn't have done that"
    Don't work out, work in.

    These are American service members, who died doing their job. Please don't crap on their memory.

    God bless them and their families - regardless of what you do in life, it's very sad, particularly for a family, when someone doesn't come home from work at the end of the day.

    These are people who signed up for a job they knew full well could take their life or result in serious bodily harm. Why? Not for money or fame, but to defend their country. Whether in training or in combat paying the ultimate price is pretty ******* heroic.

    media on tv mentioned a live mortar round
    Seven Marines were killed and eight wounded late Monday when a 60mm mortar round exploded during a training exercise at the Hawthorne Army Depot in Nevada, according to military and defense officials.
    A senior defense official said it appears that a mortar round exploded inside a firing tube instead of flying out. The official, speaking on background, cautioned that initial reports on the incident, which occurred around 10 p.m. Monday, could change on the cause.
    such a loss
    Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno, the area's major trauma hospital, took nine patients, including one who died, three who are in serious condition and five who are in fair condition, according to spokeswoman Stacy Kendall. All the patients are men under the age of 30, she said. Kendall described their injuries as penetrating trauma, fractures and vascular injuries.
