ABILENE (September 6, 2013)--A wing commander at Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene says he has a plan for defending the base from attacks by zombies.
Brig. Gen. Glen VanHerck commands the 7th Bomb Wing at Dyess Air Force Base near Abilene.
His answer to an online Q&A session that he had a zombie defense plan drew attention from the magazine Air Force Times.
VanHerck said he didn't intend to attract that much attention, only to show the Dyess community he was "approachable" and a human with a sense of humor.
The plan calls for securing the base, alerting base personnel via Internet, public access television and social media, fortifying all gates, airdropping supplies to Abilene neighborhoods, and then launching B-1Bs against the zombies.
