I finally found out why there have been so many jets and helicopters flying around this past week. Apparently I missed this story in the paper last week: Marines train for urban warfare. Thursday night, in particular, was just crazy. These things are so loud you’d think they were flying a few feet over the rooftops, but in reality they’re way high up in the sky.
I’m glad I don’t live in a real war zone, with bombs going off and stuff.
They keep me awake at night also. I would love for someone to take an over the shoulder rocket launcher and shoot at one of them so they could get the full training experience.
