    First the women and children, then the non-essential personnel, then the essential personnel.

    Voluntary at the moment.

    Wow, I was stationed at Atsugi (well actually in VAW-115 w/ CAG 5, but we spend a lot of time there), many mornings I walked out of the barracks to see Mt. Fuji to the north.

    My BIL is a is now in Yokusuka TAD, he's a doctor. He's called home to check-in with his wife and to let her know he's safe and she's passed the info to the rest of us. Currently I'm sure he's very busy protecting out service members and assisting with civilian injured.

    If nothing else the evacuation will free up more vital resources and make room for displaced Japanese.

    It wouldn't surprise me to see US bases used to house refugees. We may have already offered it up.
