Interesting Op-Ed in the NY Daily News

In light of the Fort Hood massacre, the Daily News author's argument in an op-ed piece this weekend that "the U.S. owes far better vigilance to the men and women who serve our nation in uniform" applies especially well to the service-members at Naval Weapons Station Earle. This is particularly true as we approach the 100-day deadline for the Department of Navy to blow open a hole in its security fencing to allow for unimpeded access to civilian housing at Earle thru 2040, simply to get out of a bad 1980s privatized housing contract.

The DoN's actions are deplorable, and will only endanger the staff and mission at Earle.
