The Journal of Carrie Delaney consists of two holotapes found in Fallout 3. The tapes were recorded by Carrie Delaney, a fourth grade teacher who was chaperoning a Early Dawn Elementary school field trip when the Great War occurred.
Journal of Carrie Delaney, Entry 1
My name is Carrie Delaney. I teach fourth grade at the Early Dawn Elementary School, in Washington, D.C. Yesterday, October 23, 2077, half the school went on a field trip to Lamplight Caverns. We were packing up to leave when- when everything went crazy.
The caves started shaking, the lights went out, the kids started screaming. My God... Mister Pollack went outside to see what was going on. When he came back in, he told us what he saw. Clouds. Mushroom clouds. It's finally happened. The end of the world.
Journal of Carrie Delaney, Entry 2
We're all okay. If you can call being stuck in a cave with 82 terrified kids okay. Alive, anyway. But I don't know what the hell we're going to do. It's been 4 days. Claudia went out this morning to look around, and never came back. Then Mr. Cob went out to look for her, and HE never came back.
So now there's only me, two other teachers, two of the parents who were chaperoning, and a few of the cavern staff. And all these poor kids. We've got enough food and water to last for awhile, I guess. But after that? I just don't know. We can't stay in here forever. Can we?
