Sound of Freedom now ‘Silence of the Lambs’ | Letter to the Editor


So the whiners, snivelers and anti-Navy types got their way in closing Oytlying Field.

Of course, much of this was for the “sake of the children.”

It seems they never heeded the real estate agents’ warning, so it really wasn’t their fault they moved in the vicinity.

To be a naval aviator requires skills and intelligence these people could never dream of in a million years.

A naval aviator is either at the top of his game or at the bottom of the sea.

To deprive these men and women of their practice could result in the latter.

I would only hope these constant complainers get a certain enjoyment reading the obits of these heroes in the quiet living rooms of their homes.

The “Sound of Freedom” has been replaced by the “Silence of the Lambs” going to slaughter.
