So, I just went to another office to find someone for work related stuffs and found someone in the room that wasn't supposed to be there. The room I went into was a secure room (think very large bank vault with cubicles) where they handle classified information. I badged in and then walked into the room and realized there was a guy there delivering office supplies who doesn't have clearance to be in the room and was left unescorted. He was waiting for someone who wasn't there - just standing patiently by the door for her to return - not doing anything 'wrong' in essense, except he's not allowed in that room unescorted and he's not allowed to have a cell phone in that room. He said a soldier let him him. I took care of what he needed to do and escorted him out, then looked for someone to report the incident to. I talked to another civilian who said that kind of stuff happens all the time b/c no one takes the security of that room seriously - they even let the vacuum lady wander around unescorted. I found the soldier who let him in (a MAJOR!! SERIOUSLY! A MAJOR!!) and reminded him that unless they have clearance, they're not to be left unescorted, they're not to have cell phones in the room and the red light needs to be turned on so everyone in the room knows to put their classified information away. The major is a new guy - like only a week or two old in regard to his assignment here, and he may not have been properly briefed on the procedures. I'm going to say something to the XO so they can address it. I don't want to get the major in any trouble and I hope no trouble comes of it, but during their initial training here, soldiers (and civilians alike) need to be informed of the procedures for our secure rooms. Complacency and trusting those that might rightfully deserve it but who don't have clearances can be a terrible terrible thing if the wrong information is seen. Ok... that is all. No more lectures on national security.
