Solider Takes Machine Gun Round to the Head, Finds Helmet to Prove It

 

 

 

On his way to a security meeting in Afghanistan, Staff Sgt. Bryan McQueen suddenly and unexpectedly fell under enemy fire.

Instantly, McQueen was hit in the head and fell to the ground. He got up a few short seconds later asking, "Did these mother f$^*ers really just shoot me in the head?"

This week, the helmet that saved his dome piece was presented to him on a plaque. If that isn't badass, then I don't know what is.

 Air Force Investing in Hypersonic Weapon Research

 

 

 

Just last week, Raytheon landed a defense contract with the Air Force to begin working on its hypersonic tactical boost glide weapon.

The weapon utilizes a rocket to get to hypersonic speed, where it unloads the payload and glides without power to the target. It can be maneuvered after this, but can no longer accelerate.

 

More Troops & Warships Requested to Counter Russia by Top US General

 

 

 

This past Tuesday, the top US military commander in Europe warned of the eminent Russian threat, and has called for more warships, aircraft, and troops.

To be specific, he has called for more armored units, US Navy guided-missile destroyers, carrier strike groups, and amphibious strike groups in an effort to stay ahead of Russia.

 

Florida Man Attempts to Fly with RPG in Checked Bag

 

 

 

If it starts with "Florida Man...", you know it's going to be a great story.

For some reason, because the airline didn't explicitly say "No rocket-propelled grenades", this man thought it would be okay to bring with him, "kind of like deodorant" he said.

After he was brought in for questioning, an extremely realistic grenade replica was found in his bag as well, and the RPG was not in working order.

Patriotic Florida Man was released in time to make his flight, somehow.

That was the best one I've written in a while.
