Sad too, because he'd served as a sniper for the Rangers in the first gulf war. He was a good kid. I never did hear what happened to him after that.

It happens. We work with Muriatic Acid, Lead, Galvanized metal, and God knows what else.
Over-exposure will kill anyone if left in it long enough.
Can galvalume be soldered?
