    We were diving in a lagoon at Fort Sherman, Panama after I first got certified in '89. Swam over a row of concertina wire that was stretched out on the bottom in about 20' of water. Then we came across a bunch of loose ammo scattered on the bottom and a claymore mine laying there. "THIS SIDE TOWARDS ENEMY" staring us in the face. Probably not all that "unusual" given the we were diving off a military base, but we did leave the area pretty quick and didn't try touching it.

    That's a little more excitement than I want on a casual dive...

    I took Jungle ops training at fort Sherman. On training one of the soldiers didn't tie his "dummy cord " to his M16 and dropped it into the lagoon. He failed jungle ops and had to stand guard over the lagoon for a day and a half until the rifle could be recovered.

    No diving would be allowed there at that time.

    I was near sherman and saw an eagle ray swimming . I had glanced to my left and was surprised to see it only a few feet from me and swimming gracefully but remarkably fast. I couldn't get any closer and couldn't see him after about 10 more seconds as it disappeared in the somewhat poor vis we had that day. mk

    I fail to understand the humor in such cruelty.
