Patriot Missile tossed in the trash?

Postby longhaircowboy » Wed Jul 18, 2007 12:50 am

Wasn't sure where to post this. I'm lookin for more info on this. Here's my post from my forum-

I heard that MacDill AFB accidently tossed a Patriot missile in with some scrap metal they sent to a local recycler. At about 2:15 today a white PU showed up at Scrap All in Ybor City. A MacDill EOD team confiscated a round metalic object. There appeared to be a portion of the propulsion system still visible.
No warhead attached.

It's been almost a week now and I still can't get a response from MacDill or the scrap yard. I'm not surprised by the military attitude since I'm sure I've bugged them plenty over the years. But this is a first since I can usually get at least a no comment outta some "spokesperson".
