Amputees used in war games

A Humvee and a convoy of trucks were attacked with a fake rocket-propelled grenade, causing a fake explosion that caused Cole Young, 71, who lost a leg in an oil pipeline accident, to lie on the ground with fake blood spurting from his amputated leg.

A soldier came to give Young some fake first aid. But when he saw that Young’s hand was under his poncho, working his blood-spurting machine, the soldier yelled, “He’s got a (bleep) wire!” and started firing laser bullets into Young’s chest.

That caused the other fake civilians to start screaming, “Murderers!”

That distracted the soldiers, enabling a bunch of fake insurgents to sneak up and wipe them all out — “mowing down the troops as effortlessly,” Tower writes, “as they might a herd of grazing cows.”
