    Bombs and WWII Tank in Florida

    I'd love to dig up a WWII Army tank!

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- Residents near a local middle school said they find it hard to believe that no one knew about the World War II bombing range the school was built on.

    The Army Corps of Engineers detonated 400 pounds of explosives found on the school property on Saturday.

    "We were able to explode and render safe 49 23-pound bombs," Mike Fulford of the Army Corps Of Engineers said. ......

    .....The engineers also did not mention what has just been learned about pits being dug on the property with bombs left inside them.

    "A World War II tank is physically located in one of these pits," one engineer said in reference to the size of the pits.

    "The best of the experts tell us that it is safe," Sen. Bill Nelson said. ....

    This has been all over the news here in Florida. I have a friend who's house is in that neighborhood. He's scared to plant flowers for fear of what he might hit with the shovel. If I were them I'd be PO'ed and want my money back.
    Of all the things I've lost... I miss my mind the most!!!
