PTA use by the Army. Nobody else will pay to use that land.
Plus there are some(a few) civilian jobs on the base.

I’m glad the leftists were met with opposition and the troops met with support. At the end of the article it mentions depleted Uranium shells. I do have a problem with depleted Uranium: it’s a shame to waste it. When U-238 absorbs a neutron it transforms into Plutonium 239 which is good reactor fuel. One pound of Uranium yields the same energy as 6000 barrels of oil.

Aloha Leo!

Good to see some turnout from officialdom.

As to the use of depleted uranium on the range at Pahakuloa (which many do not realize is no picnic spot), clue folks in on the money spent cleaning up a few rounds; a cleanup that was demanded by idiotinis that never go there other than to protest the military's presence.







(I just threw that in to draw interest...)
