The U.S. military has released a safety video for U.S. troops who've gotta catch 'em all.
The video, released Monday by the public affairs shop at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, notes that use of the "Pokemon Go" app has put people in "compromising situations." "One of those situations included a cliff and another a stab wound," Staff Sgt. Isaac Garden said. He cautioned users to not aim their cameras at the flightline.
"Those users who wish to keep utilizing the app on the installation, we just want them to be safe and be aware of their surroundings," said Air Force Staff Sgt. Brandon Spears, anti-terrorism officer with the 11th Security Forces Group.
But the risk doesn't end when the service members leave the base.
"This 'Pokemon Go' does have some security risks, especially while utilizing it while off the installation," said Air Force Staff Sgt. Sarah Ritz, noncommisioned officer in charge of the security forces group's Threat Analysis Cell. "It's been known to lure people in by the lure modules and they become subject to robberies."
