This is crazy.  We’re on 24-hour rotation now, just sitting in the armory in teams of 2 watching our own doors.  The riots haven’t gotten this far north yet, but there has been a constant stream of people heading north for the last two days.  But we also had a group of very angry people show up asking us what we were doing to protect their neighborhood.  They kept screaming stuff about the people on the Parkway getting out and stealing stuff and what the hell were they paying us far and all sorts of crap like that.  I sent emails and left messages to HQ about it, but they didn’t respond.  Smitty’s telling me they are actually shooting rioters at Fort Drum, and that a bunch of soldiers have gone AWOL.  They are doing accountability formations every 2 hours now and they are all carrying weapons too.  OK, this isn’t funny any more.  All sorts of folks are going to get fired over this one.
