That Jeep that was dropped and then appeared to drive off was hilarious.
I also think, or from what I have seen, the soldiers getting stuck int he mud were French soldiers.
This was some funny stuff!

Not like the Navy ever does anything like this...
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
I can't believe somebody fired a 40mm grenade launcher and got knocked down,what a woos
"Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country,"

I served as CATM cadre during basic training one year at the AF Academy. We had a "wives day" where officer's wives could come out and see what we were doing. Of course there had to be a huge dog 'n' pony show. They handpicked females to do the demonstration. Perhaps because we were cadets, they didn't trust us with live rounds (good thing, as you'll soon see). For the M-203 demo, the crowd saw a cadet fire a round and a 55-gal barrel on top of the berm blew up. The ruse was that the barrel was rigged with explosives and the M-203 only had a chalk round in it.
In this particular demonstration, the female had never fired the M-203 before. There was a male cadet watching over her shoulder. You hear the male cadet in a low voice say, "higher, higher." All of a sudden, she tripped the trigger and this chalk round came out, hit the ground about 10 feet in front of her, bounced, hit the ground again, and the barrel exploded on top of the berm.
Yes, I have totaled a HMMVV in an airdrop. Oops!

Yeah, I noticed that too Cupcake, but that's still funny stuff.
Kinda reminds me of my bud over there chasing dust devils with the HMMWV and crashing it into an irrigation ditch...
Wouldn't have happened in the CG...didn't have much equipment...although someone may have dropped a 'steak knife' or a custom China plate.

thats why airborne can't have nice things. they drop them from aircraft with faulty chutes or like them 101 guys shown get them stuck in the mud.

Every well-bred petty crook knows: the small concealable weapons always go to the far left of the place setting.
People die from recoil. I hope that first guy was ok. I think the 203 shooter took a dive. The rest were good.
It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
You gotta admit that was some funny stuff...
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
Not just US Army, but other services, too - like the AF load-master of the pallet that had a chute deploy about 10 feet before impact...
