We had Christmas eve dinner with a soldier stationed here that I have been playing music with. He is a nice guy, good musician, and a good cook too.
I avoided drinking his moonshine, though I did taste it. It tasted like alcohol and was not especially harsh. I just didn't feel like going blind.
One thing I learned while waiting to eat was that when depleted uranium shells go through armor into a tank or other vehicle, they also roast everybody inside. I knew they were hard and radioactive, I just never knew that when they hit the air inside the vehicles they incinerate everything.
I have learned that the Army calls the results "crispy critters."
You learn something every day.
