The last few days I've been so exhausted I haven't felt like journaling. But it's too important not to. The generations that follow need to know what happened here. They need to know how it all changed. For the past 3 days, military vehicles have been leaving the base constantly. A steady stream of them have been pouring out of the gates. No one felt right about it. Then today, I finally found Brian and was able to speak to him. He said the Department of Defense had let all contractors and civilians go. Just like that. The base fell into total lockdown. Until a few days ago. It seems the DOD is closing the base permanently. Word of that spread like fire. No one knows if Congress or the President are in control or not. We have lost power for nearly two weeks. All television stations are off the air. We've received no word about anything. It makes us wonder if we are on our own. But against what no one can answer.
