There’s no secret about it. If you have followed me for the past few years you can tell that I am a bit weird and an over thinker at times.

Things that shouldn’t factor into my everyday decision making process do. Here is reason #12 why I wanted to live on base.

Since I can remember I have had a fetish with zombie movies. I didn’t just join the Zombie chasing crowd when the “Walking Dead” premiered. No, in fact I was watching oldies like  Night of the Living Dead, Corpse Eaters, and early 2000’s flicks like Dawn of the Dead , and 28 Days Later. I haven’t grown the balls to go to a Zombie Walk for fear that the Zombie Apocalypse might just decide to happen when I am there. How would I know who is a real zombie and who isn’t? I digress! Dawn of the Dead messed with my head the most. The idea that we could be sitting in our home like regular people and go to bed normal only to wake up and look out our window to sheer chaos scared the beejezees out of me.

That movie and this scene below played a huge factor in my decision to live onpost:

Here are 4 Reasons Why Living On Base Can Possibly Benefit You During A Zombie Attack

1. Containment: Living on base means living behind gates. I would think that whatever is the cause of the attack is on the outside and being on base can buy us some time until we figure a way to avoid it.

2. Less People: Yes on post can be crowded but with deployments and TDY’s there still tends to be less people on base then in the outside community. This means less of a threat.

3. Access to weapons: I don’t promote use of weapons but in the case of a zombie apocalypse ample ammunition is key to survival.

4. Open View: Although I don’t live onpost now , if I did and a zombie event happened the first thing I would do is go to one of the open areas on post. An open area would be like a field where I clearly see all around me. Fort Bragg has plenty of these. You want to be able to see everything that happening around you. Most bases have training areas. There are usually trees so you can hide but if closed shelter is not available this may work.

By the way don’t forget to watch “The Walking Dead” this coming Sunday on AMC!
