"On Wednesday evening (May 1), a man plummeted into Hawaii's Kīlauea caldera — and survived.

The man had climbed over a railing at the Steaming Bluff overlook to get closer to the edge of the cliff, which dropped down 300 feet (91 meters) into the caldera. At about 6:30 p.m. local time, he lost his footing and fell, according to a statement from the National Park Service."

No offense, but people who are willing to take a level of risk like that is exactly what the army needs.

It not the strange outfit that’s a concern but the bump to his head that made him wear his undies on the outside that’s concerning.
