Letter: Stop complaining about jet noise, or just move away


I am so tired of all these people complaining about the naval base. If you don’t like it, move off Whidbey.

If the base closed we would be hurting. I know it is in Oak Harbor but it does help all of Whidbey. I do not have a problem with the training they do. I have an issue with Paine Field, but that’s for another time. Leave the Navy alone.

Let them do what they need to do — that is, to protect us. Like I said, if you don’t like it, move.
