  1. We had the same problem at Beale that Alconbury had with UXOs. Every few years after a rain a bomb or grenade would pop out of the ground. Back when it was Camp Beale it was used for artillery training and the like and clearly they weren’t very good at cleanup. It was bad enough that new housing construction was delayed because they couldn’t promise the contractors that they wouldn’t blow up.

    Also when I was a kid growing up in Louisiana part of our swimming lessons was to show up fully clothed in blue jeans so we could learn how to make a life preserver out of them while treading water in the deep end. Dare I say that a bunch of 12 year olds were better trained than the modern Navy?

  2. Glad to hear you’ve both rebounded from the covid. I had it a few months back and it kicked my ass, so I know how you felt. I really liked this episode and the best line was Jody’s assessment of Kirby’s statement on FNS, “we’re not woke, but this is why we’re woke.” I cracked up! Great stuff, guys! Keep it up!

  3. My compliments to your research department. The stats you reported on the vaccine injuries in the military was excellent and frightening! If I hadn’t got it from you, I wouldn’t have got it!
