Here's the probem - if the Secretary removes Camden at Congressman Jones' request, Cong. Butterfield will follow suit for Gates and then the Virginia site politicians will do the same. All the areas under consideration are comparable to lifestyles and economics.

My guess, Secretary Winters will not honor any requests to drop any sites.

The right thing is not to remove them. We need to support our troops.

All this sounds like NIMBY to me? And yes I live about a mile from Mayport. Jets overhead this morning are the "sounds of freedom".
Ask yourself who is the congressman really supporting? Citizens, developers or the US Navy?
