Let’s get personal: consider dislocating our senior citizens, their belongings, and the memories of living for more than 50 years in the same dwelling. Doing this to a senior citizen at this stage in their life is tantamount to a death sentence. People are being crushed in this process.
This is very personal and it time for our elected officials get off the greed of money and get the back to the foundation this country was built on. My heart bleeds for the people of this country.
I live in Plymouth, North Carolina and my area is facing a government land grab of over 30,000 acres from generational farmers and homeowners. The US Navy wants our land to relieve the state of Virginia residents of over encroachment, noise, and pollution around Oceana. Our elected officials have been offered a token of two squadrons for our land. The squadrons will be located at Cherry Point (app 70 miles way). We are a small, poor community, but fighting back with all our heart. This will cause an action of loss of homes, farmland, property taxes, jobs, tourism, wildlife, and place our military pilots and the residents here in harms way. The Navy’s own scientific data reported the harms way this would create. But oh, how our politicians just love that money. During the second flyover, the Navy pilot cancel the mission due to a “near miss” with large birds.
The people of this country must unite. Please go to our web site www.noolf.com for more information. God bless this country and the people.
