I have some bad news as well: people die all the time during military training. Sometimes boot camp, sometimes just doing their jobs.
I did a “tiger cruise” on the Abraham Lincoln in 2008, went with my dad to visit my brother who was an electrician on the fighter jets. In the 5 days on the ship, 2 people died in the continental US just in botched airplane takeoffs.
According to my brother, the Marines have a high death rate just in basic training. There is a lot he refuses to elaborate on (some he can be tried for talking about), but he was insistent that the Marines “try to kill the weak ones off”.
Just being in the service is dangerous.
