Makes 88 1/2 Yards with a grenade

Camp Blanding, Fla

Cpl. Michael Rizzo tossed a grenade 88 1/2 yards to set the new Army record. After reading in YANK that the last pineapple tossing champ was Pvt. Al Blozis with his toss of 65 yards, Michael felt he coud eaisly best that. And he did. He consistantly throws grenades with accuracy 80 yards or better.
