Because domestic lightning struck these guys when it was going to cost us a buttload of money to send them to Iraq to die or, worse yet, get their legs blown off and be on disability for the rest of their lives. From a cost standpoint, we'd be better off if the lightning had just finished these guys off (I'M JUST SAYING COST STANDPOINT),

Plus. come on, Force Lightning reference. We don't get a lot of these fresh/funny references around here.

Forrest County emergency operations director Terry Steed told a National Weather Service forecaster that nobody was directly hit when lightning hit a power pole near tents. All were taken to hospitals as a precaution, said Mike Edmonston, a senior meteorologist in Jackson.

Really? Did they get scared by the lightning and need someone rub their back?

To be fair, they're in the chair force and this is the most action they've seen outside of the showers...

I'm currently deployed to Afghanistan, but I live and work at Camp Shelby. (getting a kick etc...) Lightning happens all the time, something about the pine trees I think.

Let me tell you what really happened:

1- Lightning hit close to camp site.
2- 2 Cadets were shaken up from the concussion and medevac was called in.
3. 75 other guys saw their buddies getting out of training and started rolling on the ground moaning.

/would have done the same thing. Being in the field at Shelby sucks.

Deep South thunderstorms are scary as hell the first time you experience them up close and personal. They were for me, least. This California girl got a quick lesson on weather going from hot, steamy and still to The Gods of Thunder and Lightning having a celebrity death match in under 10 minutes (take cover!). I spent April to August at Keesler years ago. Thrilling storms. I now watch them,in Georgia,from my screened porch and they are still awesome. My coworkers daughter died by lightning strike in a ballfield. I will take cover.

Yeah they cluttered up the ER waiting room which is awesome because ER's are never busy or anything. They actually handcuffed one of the double doors together so the cadets wouldn't wander... Lots of discipline there.

The fact that you're surprised by this tells me you aren't very familiar with what goes on at Camp Shelby.

"Special Forces training," my ass. More like "how to get your unit and yourself killed in 3 easy steps."

That place is a disaster.

Is it too much too ask for you to read sentences #2-#5 of the article? Taking a ride in an ambulance != critical condition.

Air Force Reserve cadets from around the country were at the Joint Forces Training Center for two weeks of work, said Army National Guard Maj. Deidre Musgrave. All were responsive and stable after the lightning hit about 2 p.m., she said.

Forrest County emergency operations director Terry Steed told a National Weather Service forecaster that nobody was directly hit when lightning hit a power pole near tents. All were taken to hospitals as a precaution, said Mike Edmonston, a senior meteorologist in Jackson.

Is it too much for you to think?

"A frequently cited condition is "stable". Typically, stable is not a condition on its own; it is usually qualified with a true condition. It is commonly used to denote conditions where a patient has a favorable prognosis or stable vital signs."


For example, one could be shot in the arm but still be conscious and in stable condition and out of the hospital in a few hours. I know, this is mind blowing stuff but sending 2 people to the hospital is not "COOL".
