This incident was before my time, and before the vast majority of new recruits for sure.
It's still a concern. The National Guard should guard the nation. Protect the nation. That's not what happened.
Seven years before I was born, on today's date, members of the Ohio National Guard fired 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.
Call it a shooting. Call it slaughter. Hell, call it a massacre.
Just consider what you might be responsible for before you join a military organization.
