Anyone that thought the gravy train was going to last forever was fooling themselves. The Army should cut 2 or 3 combat divisions as well.

20% at Norfolk is huge, and will jettison a lot more than just dead weight.

I might be able to make it thru the HRBT in under an hour now. Truthfully 20 percent is way too many. If they want to cut fine but cut the missions also. There comes a time when you can no longer do more with less. The company I work for has finally figured that out and now are hiring again.

"How did you like the 'J Clyde Onramp' W-64 circus yesterday? Just when I thought I've been through EVERYTHING the HRBT could throw at me...."

2 and 1/2 Hours to go 20 miles what a cluster FU*K. Nope remember the flooding in the HRBT and they closed it for the day. Took people 9 hours to get home from work. If I was working that day would have gotten a Hotel Room and said the hell with it.

"Just got home from beach, 5 hours for total round trip should be 1 and a half; backed up to Richmond and back, raining like cats and wolves...crazy..." hail now..
