Next Time Stick With a Garden Gnome

Buena Vista, Colorado When a homeowner dug up a WWII-era 57mm armor piercing (AP) projectile over five years ago, he decided to place the munition in his garden as "yard art." Recently, however, reports of the unusual d├ęcor reached EOD specialists from Fort Carson who responded immediately to remove the UXO to a nearby ranch for detonation. UXO finds are common in the area which was used as a training ground for the 10th Mountain Division based in nearby Camp Hale during WWII.
