OK my husband just enlightened me on quarantine and how they go about getting things in like food medical and supplies for example.
A crew will drive the food or items to a designated area, they will unload the items being dropped off and then they will leave the same way they got in, now the ones in quarantine will come out and collect the goods.
Too simple why didn’t I think of that last night
The AN/FLR-9, operated by the Air Intelligence Agency, is part of the DOD World Wide High Frequency Direction Finding System. High-frequency radio communication signals travel to receivers over the horizon by bouncing off the ionosphere. The shell of ionised particles which surrounds the earth refracts the signals so that they return to earth rather than disappear out into space. The clarity of the signal received depends on atmospheric and topographical conditions. HF-DF stations detect radio signals from aircraft or ships, and calculate the direction, or line of bearing, of the radio transmitter from the direction finding antenna. When the same signal is received by two or more antennae, the intersection of the lines of bearing mark the transmitter's location, using either precision single station location (SSL) capability, or in a network of DF stations using both multi-station azimuth triangulation and SSL. High Frequency Acquisition (AQ) and Direction Finding (DF) operations are performed with the Narrowband System (NBS) and Wideband Direction Finding (WBDF) Subsystem in support of normal and degraded communications modes, using both adaptive reception and super-resolution direction finding techniques.
The solider responsible was very, very quickly identified but until the actual goggles were located (at a nearby pawn shop - no, seriously) we were all prevented from leaving our company area. In our case that was a hanger on a flight line.
The military takes security of any sensitive (I didn't say super-squirrel-secret stuff) items very seriously. We once lost a M-60D over the side of a Blackhawk. The entire exercise was given a "pause" (everything stopped, dead) until we found that weapon..... which took dam near 12 hours.
Between 1,200 and 1,400 people were inside the facility at the time. They included military personnel, contractors and civilian workers. About 850 people live on the base.
Post commander Col. William E. King said the nerve agent was never unsecured but had been incorrectly placed in a mislabeled container after a test on Tuesday at a base lab. The error was detected during a routine inventory check.
VX is just one of numerous deadly chemicals tested and handled at the base. A persistent chemical agent, VX can be "very deadly" if it makes contact with the skin, but the amount of material in the misplaced vial was so small that only a few people might have been affected, King said.
Why do I feel like I just got a white wash job??
Because you did
