More on the MRAP Casualty

Catching up on the news that the Army suffered it's first casualty in an MRAP since billions of dollars were allocated to the program last fall, here's a bit of a report that details what happened:

The Soldier who died Jan. 19 was the gunner who sits atop the MRAP vehicle. Three crew members tucked inside the cabin were wounded. The vehicle rolled over after the blast and it was not clear how the gunner died - from wounds in the explosion or in the subsequent roll-over.
