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)"
Original story from AP/Baderkhan Ahmad thanks to the tip from yahoo.com 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.
