This is coolbert:

I thought this was all a thing of the past. Evidently it is not so.

Fragging. A not common event during the Vietnam War but not so rare either.

"Fragging is the deliberate or attempted killing by a soldier of a fellow soldier, usually of a superior officer or non-commissioned officer (NCO)"

"US service member may have planted explosives in inside attack at Army base, injuring 4 others"

Original story from AP/Baderkhan Ahmad thanks to the tip from by David Propper June 6, 2022.

"Army officials said a service member [USA] may have carried out an attack that injured four fellow soldiers."

"An inside attack on a US military base in Syria that injured four soldiers might have been carried out by a fellow service member, Army officials said."

"The potential suspect is back stateside as the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division and Air Force Office of Special Investigations probes the April 7 attack on the base called Green Village, an Army spokesperson said."

The weapon of choice during fragging incidents usually a hand grenade. In this case it is reported that a MORTAR ROUND was used!

With the voluntary military USA you might have well reasoned that indeed fragging was a thing of the past relegated to the history books. Angry, hate-filled and disaffected conscripts no longer filling the ranks with grudges against superiors. I guess I am not so totally correct.
