US Army soldiers mistakenly raid Bulgarian olive oil factory during NATO exercise
U.S. soldiers assigned to the 173rd Airborne Brigade were conducting a simulation at the Cheshnegirovo airfield in South Central Bulgaria, McGraw said. They were moving from building to building to seize and secure each stop, and the team mistakenly believed the factory was located within the airfield, not adjacent to it.
Gaytandzhieva claimed that the owner of the factory has since filed a lawsuit.
If that happened around here… Well, there’s a reason the mil publicizes off-base exercises, and ask civilians to please not shoot.
