Ok, let me put it this way about an army base.
Lets say, hypothetically, you are a supply sergeant at fort jackson. You are in charge of an arms room (where they keep the weapons that privates
Say your count comes up one short, you recount. If that comes up one short, you recount again.
Then you ask to see if any Drill sergeants are using it, but they are not
Then you check with the other companies in your battalion.. not there
Then your battalion commander has to call the brigade commander, who calls the post commander. Post commander gives you 1 hour to find this missing
weapon (its an M16, which compared to a chemical or biological agent.. is like a pea shooter) or the post will be shut down. No traffic in, no
traffic out, until that weapon is found, PERIOD.
This goes for civilians, military, la de dadi EVERYBODY
This is how a military base can be locked down.
I have also seen a military base (ft sam houston and I assume many others) on lock down after 9-11. It was a wild experience.
What Im saying is, not EVERY time a military base gets locked down, is for some end of the world reason.. and of course, not every time a military
base gets locked down is it for a small minute thing like 1 missing weapon.
PS.. the supply sergeant (not me) found the weapon mixed in with dummy weapons (fake) in a bay, within the hour looking.
