Field Artillery. M109A2 actually hooked the ring in the M548 ammo carrier.Motor pool... Hmmm... what did you do when you were in? First half of my Army "career", I worked on the M1. Reclassed to MP.. hated it. ETS'd. Loved working on the tanks, though. They showed us those videos and photos to prevent those things from happening to us. I'm hard headed. I've almost never taken my ring off. When I did while working on a tank, I put it on my dog tags. Never lost it. I'm still a bit hard headed about it.
In my current career, I've only seen one loose a finger because of a wedding ring. Wedding band got caught on the side of a dumpster. Stepped up on the side of it to look in, foot slipped. Ring caught the side of the dumpster and "degloved" the finger. I saw it when he came into the ER. It was ugly.
LOTS of silicone wedding bands were purchased by my peers after that....
This is where most of them got theirs.
it was not a fun day.
