Superseded the June 1970 version of this training aide.
I would hope that you never have to deal with land mines, but I keep thinking of the Warsaw ghetto uprising when just a handful of Jews held off two battalions of Waffen-SS, one hundred army men, units of Order Police, and seventy-five to a hundred Security Police using just a few guns and plates used to appear to be mines. Of course they also had two real mines otherwise the decoys would not have been very effective.
When I joined the Marines I signed up for a 6 year active duty contract so I could be in Explosive Ordinance Disposal and play with mines, but since I was not told I had to be a Sergent to be in Explosive Ordinance I was made a Tank Mechanic until such a point as I earned Sergeant.GTA 5-10-27 Mine Card
