EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Florida (AP) -- The Air Force wants to take away Staff Sgt. Miguel Jimenez's job, and that's just fine by him.
The Miami airman was plucked from his normal security duties at nearby Tyndall Air Force Base to help test whether a robotic vehicle can take the
place of humans in guarding air bases and troops.
"If somebody wants to spend the money and send something like that out there instead of my life, I'm all about that," Jimenez said Tuesday of the
robots that cost from $200,000 to $500,000.
This is my kind of buggy riding
