Murphy's law was out in force on Tuesday night, when three civilians triggered a lockdown at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam after base security found what looked like explosive ordnance in the backseat of their car which, incidentally, also reeked of weed.
An Explosive Ordnance Disposal team was called to the scene as the civilians were taken into custody, and base traffic was shut down for several hours, base officials said in a statement. But it turns out the ordnance was just a mortar training round, with no explosive material inside, Chuck Anthony, a spokesman for JBPHH, told Task & Purpose.
After photos surfaced online showing a Ralph Lauren sweater with a logo that bore a striking resemblance to the Marine Corps' Eagle, Globe, and Anchor emblem, the service issued a response, and now it's gone from the designer's site.
Movies sometimes provide deep philosophical insights into the American psyche. The 2004 Will Ferrell hit “Anchorman” became an instant classic whose one-liners are still quoted more than a decade on, and probably will still be for decades to come. These quotes not only serve as great date-night conversation topics, but can also help to explain war. Modern day warfare is complex; however, Ron Burgundy and the San Diego News Team can help expand our insight into the nature of the American way of war and those who fight it.
