Let’s blow up Crescent Harbor says the navy, but don’t worry, the ground “may” vibrate


THIS IS IN A SALMON RECOVERY AREA, when will the navy stop this? How about using the swimming pool on the base for this?

    I made the same suggestion to the base!! They said that they didn’t have a pool due to fiscal constraints!!!! what a lie! how does a navy base not have a pool to train SAILORS how to swim!!! that would be like army base saying they had no land. that makes no since… they are obviously lying to me and don’t care about our complaints or suggestions. the lady went on to say that the only pool there was used to train all the pilots on the west coast how to swim. ALL LIES!! how could they think that we would belive that the ENTIRE amount of pilots on the west coast would have to use ONE POOL. AND THATS IF YOU BEILIVE THAT PILOTS NEED TO LEARN HOW TO SWIM!! THEY ARE FLYING (OVER MY HOUSE) NOT SWIMMING. The navy is SO SHADY!!

    I can NOT believe this! This is ridiculous! Bomb practice in Crescent Harbor!!!! This is simply wrong. The environmental impact WILL BE EXTENSIVE in an area that is struggling in the 1st place! Please reconsider and don’t do this!!!! We must protect our earth. You don’t protect “the People” by destroying the earth!!!!!!! For God’s Sake STOP!!!!
