Yes, I have broken several bones playing american football, and boxing while in school, but my worse experience was on Septembe 18, 1968.
I was flying a U.S. Army, UH1D "Huey" helicopter on a routine resupply mission between Da Nang and Phu Bai, South Viet Nam. While over the Hai Van Pass we received ground fire from a 12.7mm heavy machine gun, which disabled the aircraft, and caused it to crash into the jungle covered mountains at a speed of about 90 miles per hour. All four soldiers onboard survived with various injuries, mine were the most severe as I found out three days later when I regained consciousness, and saw the plaster cast covering almost everything from both feet to my right shoulder.
Between the bullets and the damage done by the crash I had twenty one broken bones. They included both tibia, both fibula, both femurs, one ilium, three lumbar vertabrae, six ribs, the sternum, one radius, one ulna, one clavicle, and one humerus, which after reflection, I decided was not very humorous at all (pun intended
). Thirteen months, seven surgeries and five pounds of stainless steel later I was released from the Erwin U.S. Army Hospital and returned to duty.
Now the students and members of English Experts can open their dictionaries and start looking up bones, and converting english measurements to metric.
