Spent 4 hours in MOPP 4 gear in a structure filled with VX nerve agent at Fort McClellan AL. Thankfully the Army's protective gear design worked properly.

Unfortunately I was the one wearing the first bodycam to record a suspect death in NC.
Fortunately my body armor survived a edged weapon attack much better than Second Chance says it will.

When I was 22 years old with a wife and two children, we moved a double wide trailer onto a wooded site of the farm we were renting/buying. Had to pound down a point for water and put in a septic tank. Then had to knife in a phone line 3/4 mile down the edge of a dirt road. WHen I got to the first available phone company pole, I turned the tractor down into the ditch bringing the line next to the pole. I unhooked from the blade and attempted to drive out of the steep ditch up to the road. Part way up the ditch, the front of the tractor started coming off the ground. It happened so fast that all I could do was jump off the back and roll to the side just as the front of the tractor landed next to me. I had a wrecker come out and tip the tractor back upright and towed back to my still shaking wife. I let the oil run back down into the pan for a couple days and started the tractor up to go disc a field. That was 54 years ago, but I remember it like it was yesterday. Someone was on my shoulder that day and he's been with me ever since.

January 1961 we were sitting in our crash trucks just off the runway waiting for a B52 declared emergency when we were notified by the tower the plane had gone down 12 miles from the base and a possible Broken Arrow (nuclear incident).

It was 2013 before it was made public one of the weapons 3 of 4 triggers had tripped and had the 4th one tripped a nuclear explosion over NC would have occurred. The aircraft had broken apart at 10 thousand feet and dropped two nuclear bombs.

I am in the picture one of the individuals in silver suits we are the fireman this was not EOD personal as the 2nd weapon had not yet been found. This picture was taken just after 1st light and we had located the 3rd crew member.

This is a very close to the what actually happened many of the stories about this incident are pretty much fictional.

while working as an electrician disconnecting equipment in an closed steel mill
standing on a ladder with my hot stick gloves on, reached in the panel with an allen wrench and shorted out 2 phases of 550 volt. melted the allen wrench and the lugs I shorted out. tripped the 2500A switch in the substation .

I survived with no injuries and a few burnt holes in the T shirt I was wearing

continued working for another 25 years as an electrician

Someone was looking out for me that day

There are many people that do not know how unforgiving a farm tractor can be, many are not with us today learning that lesson the hard way.
