Looks like the Marines, and others are going to have a new toy to kill the bad guys with.

Kinda makes you want to re-enlist. :twisted:

Except for a few hiccups along the way. Weapons test and train is slated for Eglin, but has repeatedly been held up due to litigation by the mayor of Valparaiso. Yes, he has become a pariah because of this. The reason he gave was the noise factor was going to reduce home values. Wonder what his home value will be if thousands of jobs fail to come into the area? There was a huge petition drive and I am confident the sticks in the mud will be trampled.

PS: If your bored, give this a good read. With the incoming of the JSF, for all military branches, it seems the weight of one plane, does outweigh the surrounding area (people). http://www.eglin.af.mil/shared/media/do ... 06-032.pdf
