Last week, we posted an article about how the Department of Homeland Security was using tax payer dollars to dress up as zombies and run mock scenarios of the Zombie Apocalypse. Now we learn, from the Military Times, our military will be running mock drills in “preparation” for the Zombie Apocalypse.
You really can’t make this stuff up!
It seems the Zombie Craze, that took over the gun industry, has now found its way into our country’s military training drills. In partnership with the HALO Corp., over 1,000 military personnel, law enforcement officials, medical workers, and state and federal government employees will be taking part in a five-day mock zombie apocalypse drill. The zombie drills are all part of the Halo Corp’s annual Counter-Terrorism Summit in San Diego.
HALO Corp. is a security firm that trains the military and federal agencies in counterterrorism, security protection, emergency response, disaster management and now the Zombie Apocalypse. The firm employs former military special operations members as well as former intelligence officers and national security experts.
