A story from CNN reminds one that the enemy is not the only hazard of serving during wartime.
Two U.S. sailors were killed and one was critically wounded in a shooting inside their barracks early Monday at a U.S. Navy's base in Bahrain, the Navy said.
The shootings took place in the barracks on the U.S. Naval Support Activity Bahrain base around 5 a.m. local time, the Navy said in a statement, according to The Associated Press.
The shooting was not a terror-related attack, the Navy said. A Navy spokesman in Bahrain refused to provide any other details about the incident to CNN.
Although few details are known at this point, this story reminds us of another observation: anytime more than one human lives in close quarters, friction is bound to develop.
