Finally, some images that Silvia emailed a while ago, I can now post.
THIS IS A GRAPHIC color photo. These large gaping wounds are the result of serious injuries.

This is an Army video. At 4:27-4:38, the jet guns are pressed into the arms of each recruit without any attempt to clean them between each injection.
In the right menu, there are some other recruiting videos. This one is from the Marines. It doesn’t show jet guns but does show dentist exams were performed, no gloves of course, at 5:42-5:48.

And I’ll get up a report Silvia sent us on jet guns and Frank has also some items of interest to post here.
