    The guys having fun is cool, the misleading headline is not.

    Spoken as a father who is about to have his second serving, so I don't need any advice about what to relax about.

    Life to way too short to be uptight about a thread title, just because YOU interpreted it differently.

    Again, I tell you RELAX and get over it.

    Chip (Minnship8),

    I was a little hesitant in watching the video. By the time the video reflected the humorous activity, it did not seem as much.

    I understand your point.

    "Troops Having A Little Fun" would have been more appropriate. Still would have been a little deceiving, in a totally different way.

    It is good to see the troops in a lighter mood of fun for a change, instead of seeing them fighting for there lives, let alone ours.

    I salute you, and thank you for your service. Jon

    Bryan,
    How many different interpretations are there to "Tragic Javelin Missile Misfire In Afghanistan"? You want to tell me to relax? So I should forget what a Law Rocket looks like when it goes off at the feet of the soldier aiming it at the ground as he plays with the trigger after a misfire?

    I don't know why I even looked at the video, I was anticipating the same horror.

    Walk through Walter Reed and show guys that headline, don't tell them it's a joke and get their reaction. I've been in Walter Reed, I've got a pretty good idea what the reaction would be.

    I am allowed to pleasantly object to a misleading headline of that nature. You however, are out of line telling me what I should relax about.

    Chip

    Chip,Please watch your language.

    Having worked on the Javelin Program at Lockheed Martin in Orlando, I too think that a different thread title would be in order.

    I don't understand what the title has to do with anything. I am not a soldier or father of a soldier but I can't see how anyone wouldn't see this as funny. I realize it's winter and some people have nothing to do but blow up at everyone on here for one reason or another but GET OVER YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Having a son in Afghanistan I was not quick to watch this fearing the worst missing my son at very moment. Your lack of understanding of that either your son is hanging out at the Mall or you don,t have one. The guy said title scared him You don,t get that You are Clueless Dave PS every time I here the word Afghanistan I get choked up But thats me. To even challenge some one who has this situation Here try this is what you should have wrote Sorry I didn,t realize how that could be taken best wishes for your sons and there safty thanks for there service

    The thread title did what it was attempting to do, get people to watch the video. As a side benefit it exposed some crybabies. Bravo silver

    EXSPOSED some thing thats for sure One thing to say or do something without realizing how someone might feel out it something else to disregard someone who has a dog in fight . He said the title scared him if being concerned about my Son makes me a cry baby SO BE IT Tough guys don,t care about there kids I guess You either have no kids have no kids in service or have never had any in , Or these are friends of yours you feel they need your support I done reading any more of this crap. Let me ask you two question John Galt do you have kids are any or have any been in service I can guess at answer

    OH great, now we have moved on to having kids and no soul. Pretty funny how a simple thread title can be twisted and misconstrued. Be done reading, for the love of everything good, please.

    It's "Christ" not "Crist" please try and spell the Lords name correctly. Better yet, how about not using the Lords name as an expression of your anger.
