Soldier’s Unwise Costume Choice

Idiot

A soldier who tried to enter North Carolina’s Fort Bragg U.S. Army base dressed as a suicide bomber for Halloween prompted a security alert including a search for explosives, military media said on Sunday.

The unidentified soldier, wearing a costume that appeared to be an explosive vest, tried to pass a checkpoint on Saturday evening, the base said in a Facebook post, which has since been removed, according to Military.com.

The post said the incident resulted in an emergency response that consisted of the gate being briefly closed as explosive technicians cleared the site, according to the military news website.
