“Last evening a Soldier attempted to gain access to Fort Bragg through one of our access control points,” the original post said, according to military.com. “The Soldier was dressed as a suicide bomber with simulated explosive vest.”The incident is still under investigation, although it is believed to be nothing more than a poor costuming choice.See the full article from NY Daily News.Stay tuned for the top costumes of 2015.[mwi-cat-listing cat="94" ppp="4" cols="4" desc="false" type="view" btn_color="black" ]
