Yesterday was the last day of my job and Monday will be the new one woohoo. The day was hot and slow until someone ran through the BLK yelling fire! fire! so I had to go check out the situation. It seems a diesel fuel truck was on fire right outside the door. As he was filling the generators a spark set the engine on fire. The next yell was evacuate! evacuate! so we all took off running. You don't have to tell me twice.
As we evacuated we went to check on our guys out in the lot and as we came up the MPs raced in front of us. A soldier had passed out and was in the ambulance. Wow what a day! We were allowed to go back in later on and all was well.
I've noticed that there are a lot of non-Western expats on base now. I know they are cheap labor but should foreigners have so much access to military information? We have FNs working on the vehicles, driving the vehicles and knowing everything about the military fleet. Some people think Americans might be replaced by cheap labor. There are a lot of Americans in the states that would be willing to work just to have a job. If cheap labor is needed I'm sure some people who are not working would take any decent amount so they can put food on the table.
Time will tell.
