“It was 8 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9, and the entire base was empty except for a handful of security forces members and the 6th Mission Support Group commander.

It seemed just absolutely foreign to not see anyone moving about the base, to know there was no one left on it, yet so rewarding to know that we played such an integral part in making that possible,” said Tech.
