Feedback:Military's noise means protection
I would like to convey to Mari Anderson that my response to her letter was typed in my residence, on NAS Patuxent River, Md. I do live directly under the flight path at the naval test base. My roots on Whidbey Island also run deep. My letter was sent with intention to THANK the men and women who serve our U.S. military.
I guess I find noise less of an issue than the idea of losing our identity as a country. Our freedoms and our lives are protected by men and women who choose to protect us, while leaving their families and lives behind and they rarely get the respect they deserve.
I think our focus should turn from concern about how we are affected by noise and turn to how we are affected by pride and American freedoms. That noise is preparation for people in the military to travel to other countries leaving their family behind and fight for EVERY Americans freedom. With no disrespect intended, take a moment out, a moment to think about how much you enjoy even the small things that others without such a strong military dont have.
Anytime you are in the Maryland area, please stop by, I would be more than happy to show what it is that the military really is doing for YOU and ALL Americans! After that we can take a 45-minute drive up the road and you can take a look at the Pentagon, and what life would be like without a military like ours.
