When ingenuity and engineering meet in the combat zone -- designs like the Mobile Area Cordon Equipment (MACE) stop.
Marine Corps Intelligence, Oorah!
"EOD disposes of a cache of ied making material in Iraq, and we discover the distance of our Osh-Gosh 7-ton has been overlooked. We are definitely too close. Our driver takes a grapefruit sided rock to the forearm and over reacts slightly. He was not seriously injured. He just got a minor bruise and abrasion out of the deal. Also, at the end, I'm not laughing at his misfortune, just at the situation we've put ourselves in and the potential catastrophic consequences we luckily avoided. If you watch closely, you can see some VERY large boulders that were thrown due to the cache being inside a cave when detonated."
