DECONSTRUCTING THE WHISTLEBLOWER'S MESSAGE:
Whistleblower at Dyess on no-paper nuke transport, Sept. 2013: " No one knew where they were going really, but the truck driver said to take them to
South Carolina and another pick up will take them from there.”
MILITARY BASES IN SOUTH CAROLINA
There are 8 military bases in S. Carolina: 2 Air Force, 1 Army, 2 Marine Corps (including Marines Air Station Beaufort), 2 Hospitals and 1 Weapons'
Station belonging to the Navy.
Having already learned to look for Changes of Command or Transfer-in Announcements at key bases in July thru September 2013, as this "nuke drama"
began to unfold, I found the following news stories in reference to Joint Base Charleston very interesting:
(Sept. 9/18/13) NEW SARC WELCOMED
" The Joint Base Charleston - Air Base officially welcomed its new Sexual Assault Response and Prevention Coordinator on Aug. 26, 2013. Florine King,
JB Charleston - Air Base SARC, came to Charleston from DYESS AIR FORCE BASE, Texas, where she was the installation SARC for more than two years."
(Sept. 24 or 29, 2013) CHANGE OF COMMAND CEREMONY
"I've heard about Southern hospitality my whole life, and now, actually getting to experience it, it's pretty impressive." These are the first
impressions of Col. Jeff DeVore, Joint Base Charleston commander. DeVore took command at a change of command ceremony Aug. 29, 2013, after serving as
the commander of the 386th Expeditionary Operations Group where he led a joint team of Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen providing tactical airlift,
aeromedical evacuation, search and rescue, personnel recovery, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and operational support capability
throughout Southwest Asia."
And their October 2013 news items has some interesting tidbits too:
(10/8/13) COMMISSARIES RETURN TO NORMAL HOURS FROM FURLOUGHS
"Military commissaries worldwide are returning to normal operating schedules effective Oct. 7, said the director and CEO of the Defense Commissary
Agency. "This is certainly good news for our patrons and our employees," said Joseph H. Jeu. "All our stateside stores are now returning to their
regular schedules as of Oct. 7."
"The DeCA announcement comes in the wake of the Department of Defense's Oct. 5 decision that most DOD civilians will be recalled to work beginning
Monday, Oct. 7. As part of DOD's guidance, commissary operations were deemed necessary support to service members and their families. Most stateside
stores had previously closed Oct. 2 as part of the government shutdown. Overseas commissaries had been allowed to remain open."
(NOTE: The rogue nukes were dumped/exploded off the Atlantic coast on October 8. Was the re-opening of the commissaries on October 7th just a
coincidence? Or was it designed to provide a cover-of-activity for what was planned the night of October 8th?)
(10/8/2013) EDITORIAL BY COL. DARREN HARTFORD, 437TH AIRLIFT WING COMMANDER
"DELICIOUS AMBIGUITY" (led by these quotes)
"The best laid schemes of Mice and Men oft go awry..." Robert Burns
"Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious
Ambiguity" -- Gilda Radner
"I find that it is possible to adapt to uncertainty or a changing world just like it is possible to adapt to a new route to work. If you keep LOOKING
FOR THOSE NEW ROUTES, and new challenges, it can keep your perspective fresh and give you the ability to spot new opportunities. Uncertainty is not
comfortable, but we can get through it and if we handle it well, we will be a better Air Force for it."
(NOTE: Was this the "signal" that the "rogue nukes" plan had been derailed? And that they were going to be dumped in the Atlantic that very
