Yes, I remember this scandalous "mistake". Too many of them for my taste in our "modern warfare".

And friendly fire seems to play a roll all too often, with the Penatgon's slimy cover up as a knee-jerk SOP.

Best wishes to the Ballard family and my forever gratitute to them and condolencese for their loss.
