A friend of mine graduated from AF Academy, he said the VoQ, O-Club, and base Hospital are in the area being evacuated, and the football stadium is not far away.


Here is a Pic he sent me from the cadet area

I just heard the apartments on Delmonico have burned. That is less than a mile from my parents old house... What an absolute mess so many people are losing everything they have...
