Shane, you obviously have no idea what you are talking about. War is chaos by its very nature. The best training gets as close to that chaos as it can. We hope that nothing goes wrong. But because of the very nature of chaos, something is going to go wrong. Every training exercise and war game I've been involved with, has had accidents. Most have no injuries, or just minor injuries. Cuts, bruises or maybe a broken bone. Some have life altering injuries. And once in a while, a fatality. We strive to keep the injuries to a minimum, but they do happen. And when they do happen, we study them and try to figure out how it happened. We learn from the accident and hope we can prevent it from happening again.

Shouldn’t have happened. We should be too organized in our Armed Forces by now to let this happen. Mind you, 3 individuals not just one.

It's always terrible when something like this happens, it's important to assess how much of it was a hazard of the occupation or negligence. My prayers go out to the families and the souls of the deceased, may they rest in peace.
