First-person account from Keesler AFB 

We got an e-mail from somebody who says they are stationed out at Keesler Air Force Base. I'm trying to get a name to properly credit them, but this is what they say: First off, I just wanted to address the concerns that were posted in Keesler kin checking in. I'm sheltering at the med center and we're all safe and relatively comfortable. The power is still up and the med center personell is going above and beyond to ensure our safety. No worries here. I personally feel like this is the safest place I can be with my kids. Also, I was wondering if there's anyone out there who might have some insight on how this storm could affect Ocean Springs as far as damage to property goes. Thanks and God bless, and STAY SAFE.
