Growler opponents on Whidbey ask for your help

The ROD decreed an 80/20 split making Central Whidbey the primary location for Growler jet FCLP’s – this means they will fly 120–150 days over Central Whidbey, as apposed to about 50 days in the past at 6120 operations. The result is citizens do not have full access to their property, homes, businesses, schools, etc. for about 1/3 of the year – and most likely have to stay inside, close the windows, or leave the area during the overflights. Kids are still in school and no afternoon outdoor activities will be able to happen 3 out of 5 days this coming week. It will be a hard week for sleeping. This is like a natural disaster happening every day next week in Central Whidbey. The Navy needs to provide immediate operational relief. Growler jets do not belong here and the number of jets and flights is not sustainable. The DoD is out of touch with the people it’s supposed to defend and who pay their bills. They need to be held accountable. It’s up to us.
