More Demolitions Training At Joint Base Near Manchester

Written by Manchester police:

Demolitions training is scheduled to occur in the Joint Base ranges here March 28-30, 2014. Firing is scheduled to cease at 11 p.m. each day.

This training is essential and helps to ensure the readiness of America’s fighting force. As a result of this important training, some residents may hear more noise than usual coming from our ranges and may experience possible ground shaking.

It is important to note that noise from the ranges may travel farther during overcast weather conditions. The joint base works very hard to ensure training has minimal impact on its local communities. JB MDL is grateful for the overwhelming support it has received throughout the years.

Base leadership values this relationship and will continue to work hard to ensure we remain good neighbors. Contact the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst Public Affairs Office at (609) 754-2104 with any questions or concerns.

I am amazed no one asks why can't they do this stuff on a computer.

4 weeks in a row? Are they prepping for WWIII?

I don't give a fat rats buttocks about the alleged training of military forces at any base anywhere in the country. There isn't a nation on earth that can even come close to competing with the United States force for force. America behaves like a crazed mad bomber. Yes, our guns are always ablazen! The notion that even a major power the likes of China or Russia could outlast America in conflict is ridiculous. At the opposite end of that spectrum there is that always present possibility, and much talked about "threat of terrorism" and another September 11. What do the American people have to fear from terrorists who believe that they can bring down America by staging car bombings across our country? Even if America does face credible possible attacks by Islamic extremists in the future, how will the training exercises now taking place on military installations across the country aid U.S law enforcement in any way? These people vaporize themselves when they launch an attack, so what use is it for the military to practice precision demolition? If this all sounds as if I am personally fed up with all of the earth shaking under my double-wide mobile home here in Manchester, then the reader has gotten my message. I sure wish the mad bombers would as well.

We thought it was thunder here by Fischer Blvd. in Toms River. The sound really travels! Nice to know our troops are hard at work and have our backs. Thank you to our military!

Believe me...the amount of people the Chinese would kill of their own just to defeat us would amaze you. No way we could win that. Life is cheap in Asia.
