Fighter Sweep shared with you a video of Humvees actually ‘falling’ from the sky and being destroyed when they hit the ground. Now there is news that a soldier is being charged with destruction of government property.
A soldier has been charged with destruction of government property and making a false official statement after three Humvees free-fell from a C-130 during a parachute drop in Germany last year.
Maj. Juan Martinez, a spokesman for the 173rd, announced the charges Tuesday. “Should this case progress, we will continue to release information consistent with Army policy,” Martinez said in a statement to Stars and Stripes.
The charges indicate that the Army does not believe that equipment failure caused the Humvees to slip from their parachute harnesses and fall off of their platforms, Stars and Stripes reported. – Army Times
