Ya we were allowed on base after the gate SF guard asked the DoD Police guard if it was ok, which has never happened before. After checking in my
buddy dropped me off at my room passing by another black unmarked SUV speeding along with his lights going. See this is why I think they were
searching for something or someone, because the SUV's were traveling on several roads going different directions. We never saw any of them stop but
we had two in total pass us and I witnessed others later pass by my dormitory. They weren't using sirens, only their lights and I didn't see any the
next day nor hear much about it other than from my friend who took me back to the train station that day.
According to him about a half-hour or so after he dropped me off the ordeal seemed to have wrapped up. From what we observed though, it was definitely
no exercise though it might have been a false alarm. During an exercise what they do is take regular SF cars and block all entrances and exits from
the base, SF cars/SUV's are the usual white and blue, again SF doesn't have any black SUV's, anyway they didn't do this. Instead all vehicles
exiting were stopped and yet vehicles were allowed to enter, this doesn't happen during an exercise nor does it make sense unless they are trying to
keep something from getting out which is a bit perplexing because we were under the impression from the guard that the state of alarm was caused by
something that came in.
I am not familiar with the sensors (if any) that they have around the base perimeter but I doubt its that complex so either a patrol spotted something
or their was something escaping from within.
A small oddity was that they had SF manning the gate on the Fort Dix side (along with DoD Police) instead of MPs and I have never seen either MPs or
SF member manning the Fort Dix gates since they implemented DoD Police. This might be normal but I have never seen it before.
Fort Dix also has a prison that keeps both military and non-military inmates and perhaps the most plausible answer for the incident that night, but
wouldn't that warrant a very different response then what I experienced?
I'm only a SrA and not a member of a job that would be included in most "need to know" so I may never find an answer when I go back on Monday.
Hopefully I get some sort of answer whether it be vague or not, it could add to the excitement, and I would hate to let you guys down with nothing for
