FORT BRAGG, N.C., Jan. 2 (UPI) –
An Army officer stationed in North Carolina revealed pictures of “Gingerbottabad,” a replica of Obama bin Laden’s compound made from gingerbread.
The Fort Bragg-stationed intelligence officer, who asked to be identified only as Steve “so I don’t limit my career options,” posted pictures on Twitter of his scale model of the Abbottabad, Pakistan, compound that sheltered the terrorist leader until he was killed by Navy SEALs in 2011, the Military Times reported Thursday.
He said he used four pounds of dough and it took him several days to assemble the resulting 63 pieces of gingerbread into a replica of bin Laden’s compound.
Steve said the replica includes plastic Army men and a model UH-60 to represent SEAL Team 6 and their crashed Blackhawk helicopter during the May 2, 2011, attack on the camp.
He said there is still some work to be done before the project is completed.
