Indeed. And the safes containing codebooks and misc. hardware spares had a cupholder affair cut into it. Anytime the base was under attack or in attack threat status, a thermite grenade was to be placed in each holder. When the word came down, pull the pins, grab your rifle and hightail it for the assembly point.
