Thank you, Navy, for the sound of freedom

Fly over and/or around my home anytime. From our side of the water I can barely see, let alone hear these so-called terrible jets flying at OLF Coupeville. And I lived in Oak Harbor for over 12 years.

This hullabaloo over a few squeaky-wheel people whining about the Navy is nonsense. Growing up hiking, hunting and fishing much of the Oregon and Washington backwoods since the 1960s, I occasionally saw and heard jets flying over my head through the valleys. It did get my attention for about a second and a half. I’m not deaf nor suffer any negative effects from their training. Thumper, Bambi and Tweety Bird didn’t freak out when they flew over. The animals don’t glow in the dark from all the so-called electromagnetic emissions. Neither do I.

It’s no different than the animals and humans hearing the naturally loud noise called thunder and seeing lightning in the woods.

If you’re lonely and or have so much time on your hands, please volunteer at the Winter Shelter at the American Legion. Become a police or sheriff’s volunteer.

With the increasing danger from fanatical Islamic terrorists like ISIS and their Jihadist crazy people, training and preparation to fight these vermin is more important now than ever before. Thanks again, Navy. Your “noise” is the sound of freedom. Keep it up.
