Robert D. Burgener, then a warrant officer candidate, is shown in this photo from Kuwait in 1991. Burgener encouraged a group of local parents to snap one souvenir photo of a captured Iraqi vehicle on the condition they would then leave. Moments before, with their kids climbing all over the Soviet designed armored personnel carrier, an explosive ordnance disposal specialist warned Burgener there was a live hand-grenade booby-trapped inside. The EOD folks had no luck in ordering the kids to leave.  Burgener applied his powers of persuasion and got them out of harm?s way.
