While trying to figure out what all the racket and house shaking was from, we discovered a leaky toilet, so thanks Camp Pendleton! PS, my wife was also thrilled that no one was breaking into our house, although it sounded like it. How about that for a silver lining (besides the whole freedom thing)?

War and combat training is not a 9 to 5 type of thing. Ever thought about the children who live ON the base and who's parents are out there training to protect YOUR freedom?! I'm honestly embarrassed for you that you are complaining about this on a public forum, you've made yourself look ridiculous.

Hello, first thank you to all you do for our country!! Second, I am new to the area are the booms shaking my home coming from Camp Pendleton? My home in Florida is new Big Lake George so, I am familiar with the booms when they are testing compression bombs, these in Oceanside seems very similar to those.... Thanks, Sincerely, Rox

I love and appreciate the military and have no problem with the troops who about to be sent to Afghanistan learning to protect others and keep themselves safe. Go BOOM all you need to and thanks.
