"Boating Forum"???? I guess in this case it applies with the navy calling submarines "boats"!

WHY would they do that?
All we EVER hear is DO NOT DRIVE IN WATER!!!!
Even if it's 6"-12" deep.
These F heads think the rules of nature do not apply to them.
It's not their vehicles. I know they pay taxes also but they should have to pay the entire cost of them be it a total loss or to fix them.

Lucky the current wasn't more swift, unlike their thought process.

TOTAL STUPIDITY!!!!!!!!

Well, SOMEONE had to order them to enter the flooded area. It's likely that these poor guys were "only following orders" which, if disobeyed, would have had serious consequences for them. Let's first try to determine exactly who made the decision to drown these trucks before we come down of the guys who were in them.

Maybe someone who had been in the NG can enlighten us as to proper procedure here.

Some young 2LT or platoon SGT or Squad leader probably lead them into the deep water...
I'm sure that's all it was......

They were probably given a sector or area to go into, that's all. I doubt it went any higher then O1 or E5.....

No one has to order GIs to do stupid stuff. The phrase "screw up a steel ball with a rubber hammer" was coined in the military. I saw a lot of stupid stuff when I was in. The official word in the best military lingo is.... "the soldiers were overcome with confidence." I hope the spokesman was smiling when he said it.

People, including the amateur videographer, should have their facts straight before casting stones.

These were specially-made semi-amphibious vehicles. They were designed to travel through deep water, hence the easy escape (read hatches). The only mistake was not realizing the depth that the water eventually came to.

Beat up your military, national guard or otherwise, all you like. They'll still take a bullet to protect your freedom.

first they are oshkosh 7tons, 2nd they can safely go in 60" of water(up to the bottom of the door),those hatches are bolted down, they are covers for the gun turret when not in use, they are national guardsmen which tells me they never do anything like this (play war two weeks out of the year) and they mae this choice, yes and LT or some ssgt told them to get from point a to point b but they were retarded for even thinking of trying this, hope they get NJP and busted down........

btw i was a us marine for four years with two combat pumps and i had my 7ton license, i have forded rivers and creeks in afgahnistan, any driver knows the limits of thier truck, these guys dont have a clue
