It is amazing how many people you will find in so-called military towns who hate the military and the military members, including local governments. I have seen firsthand when the Base Commanders and leadership had to do things to remind the local communities as to just how must the base actually contributes to their economy. I was at a base where all Active Duty personnel were ordered onto the base (including all married and unmarried) and the gates closed. One base marked every denomination of currency on the base, including the bills in the wallets of all personnel, to show the locals people the impact of the base. I also saw one other thing that made the local constabulary change hands.

More than one base commander, to get his point across to the local community, elected to pay the troops in $2 bills. They got the point.

How many Mexican flags, license
plates, rear window stickers,
are allowed to be displayed?
I’m so sick of this crap. I
fly the AMERICAN flag, a POW
flag, and a Gadsden flag,
illuminated...24/7....
If these bastards proudly fly
the flags of their home countries,
WHY ARE THEY HERE? They should
be very proud to escape their
former bonds, and embrace the hard
earned freedom of the USA.

At my Technical School in Texas there was a rash of assaults and stabbings downtown, culminating in the murder of an Airman. The city police blew off the Base Commander, a General, and basically said his personnel were not wanted so the General order every single military member and their families onto the base and locked the gates. People were billeted in the gym and some training hangers.

Three days later the Mayor was begging the General to open the base as the city was actually going out of business. I don’t think they ever found the murderer but relations with the city improved dramatically.

Something like that was done over at England AFB, La in the mid-70s as well.

They will be fired with extreme prejudice. The suspension and investigation is a formality.

Thank you. All the journalists need to go back to school and learn to put the full description of the location in there articles. Once upon a time that was standard.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = =
That AND a good old fashioned ‘dungaree liberty’ were effective.

(For those of you that don’t know, there was a time when one did not leave the base/military office in ‘work clothers (Khakis, dungarees) etc, civilian clothes OR Uniform of the Day were required to visit ‘civilian land’.

Today you see them in cammies etc in bars and shopping...
