For many Americans, a video of the HIMARS launch with treats will look very strange, but for the families of military personnel from the Fort Sill base, it is just another holiday.
In the US state of Oklahoma, during the celebration of Halloween, sweets were distributed to children in an unusual way. Soldiers from the Fort Sill base fired a salvo of candy from a HIMARS multiple launch rocket system, after which children in costumes began to race to collect goodies. The video was posted on the official Fort Sill Twitter page.
The video shows children in fancy dress on the occasion of Halloween running around the square and collecting candies that were fired from the MLRS. When the treats fell on the floor, they raced to pick them up and put them in their pockets and baskets.
“How else would you expect us to give kids Halloween candy? Open fire!!!” — the publication says.
The US military jokingly called the video “Fire Mission”, and later published a post where they arranged a treat for their guests in the “trunk and treat” format, decorating the equipment with Halloween-themed decorations.
“Base 1-78 FA I wasn't joking when I said I was happy with Trunk-or-Treat,” the military wrote.
Fort Sill is a base in the state of Oklahoma with a population of about 10,000 people. It is home to the US Army Field Artillery School, where soldiers learn how to use weapons such as HIMARS.
US military bases around the country tend to have their own culture. Military personnel live there with their families and celebrate holidays with the families of their colleagues. And although for many residents of the country the video of the launch of HIMARS with sweets will look very strange, but for the families of military personnel it is just another holiday on the territory of a military facility.
Among the dead foreigners there are people from Iran, Uzbekistan, China, Norway and Russia. In connection with the tragic incident, national mourning was declared in South Korea.
