  1. I believe I read that a Marine who tried to fire a “knee mortar” broke his leg. Reminds me of the time we were moving through a Vietnamese village at night. The squad leader gave us all “pop-ups” and when he called for “illumination!” I fired mine by striking the pop-up on my thigh. Almost knocked me over and I had one nasty bruise!
