Something tells me this will all be in a theater near you by the end of the summer.

You people are so anti NJSP. It turns out it's the Army using Ft. Monmouth for training not the NJSP. As for the person that doesn't know where the nearest military base is try getting away from the computer and find out. There is one 25-30 air miles from LB (Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in Ocean and Burlington Counties).

Saw movie production and catering trucks, it's just a cover so people don't flock to the area to disturb filming.

This time someone crossed the Rubicon by allowing low flying military helicopters in a heavily populated civilian area. Didn’t anybody bother to do a mission analysis first? No planning period, no risk interface before unleashing the flying armada? And what perfect timing; the area had been plagued with thunder & lightning storms, rain & high winds, now military helicopters hovering so close to the ground that one can identify the pilots. This is another nail in the areas economic coffin, residents are already moving out in droves for lack of jobs now this is really going to put the kibosh on real-estate. Suppose an accident occurred and one of those choppers loaded with fuel crashed into a neighborhood or the Monmouth Mall or the Swimming River reservoir, this is all we need. I would like to know the names of those responsible for authorizing this. I think it’s time we write to our congressional representatives germane to this matter.
