Wow!

That sarcasm went right past your head!

Studies show there is a high percentage that accidents happen within short miles of any person's destination. Because people relax.

"Oh, there are no cars going by..."

"Oh, we are in a military base. People drive carefully here since..." "a heavy fine can happen…" Or "Military Police enforces the rules regarding traffic..."

"People drive carefully here since they know there are always military formations on the roads..."

Etc.


 ???


There also is minimal traffic as in one or two cars and the speed limit at the base is around 10mph. It's also really hard to know when it is sarcasm when you aren't directly talking to someone

Slow moving, infrequent traffic can kill you just as dead as fast moving, frequent traffic... especially if you let your guard down by assuming said slow moving, infrequent traffic isn't a hazard (it is).

Fair enough, but you now know there is no such thing as a "nothing bad could ever happen" perimeter,
complacency is what generates 78's.

The next time you find yourself at an encampment or similar activity without a T-O around, ask where he is.

I think we beat up the C/TSgt's post enough about how to run Encampment and the role of TOs. Sounds more like an issue that should be addressed with seniors. The cadet's high-ho story got way blown out of proportion.

I do consider this to be sound advice. "Hey, where's our staff at?"

But without knowing, was C/ Killeen here on cadre or a student? I'm assuming student. Not really his responsibility at that point.

And on that note (G#), we're done.
