    14,000 rounds of ammunition missing from Fort Bragg

    14,000 rounds of ammunition missing from Fort Bragg

    From John Branch, CNN
    UPDATED: 11:55 PM EDT 09.09.11

    Authorities are trying to find 14,000 rounds of ammunition missing from Fort Bragg in North Carolina.

    The ammunition went missing from the 1st Brigade Combat Team at Fort Bragg, said Staff Sgt. Joshua Ford.

    The missing ammunition can be used in the M-4 and M-16 assault rifles.

    Someone alerted Fort Bragg leadership about the missing items on Wednesday, Ford said.

    After the report, the 1st Brigade team, about 3,500 people, was placed on lockdown during an initial investigation, Ford said.

    The ammunition was not found and the lockdown was lifted Wednesday night.

    "The incident is currently under investigation and all appropriate measures are being taken to locate the small arms ammunition that was discovered missing on Wednesday," said Lt. Col David Connolly, a spokesman for the 82nd Airborne Division.

    Bastards. When I was in the Navy we visited Portsmouth. All we took was shot glasses and beer mugs from the local pubs.

    Thanks to ASVAB waivers and legal waivers, they've allowed some borderline retarded criminals into the military. You can easilly steal shit....Even in training as a recruit it was easy to do, if you wanted.

    Ain't that the truth. 2nd Para would steal anything that wasn't nailed down. Had a great time with those guys many years ago tearing up Soul. Those boys can drink and chase tail!

    So the Army lost 14,000 rounds of 5.56? Hell someone was probably stoned during inventory. Sounds like a lot, but in reality that really is not all that much. If the unit was deployed, they probably left it behind and forgot to do the proper paper work.

    Oh yeah, one other thing. Tells you something about the intellect of the press. There is no such thing as a M4 or M16 ASSAULT RIFLE.

    14,000 rds of ammo missing? Imagine that. Next thing you know, they'll figure the guys with diesel pickups are filling them up for free with JP-8.

    Took a few hours to carry ammo from vehicle, by then everyone was gone.I guess hooded figures carrying crates of ammo gave off a bad vibe.
