Military helicopters

I have been noticing lately that the military has had their helicopters flying over a lot. Mostly at night but still a lot during the day. A lot of them are flying pretty damn low. A few of them low enough to shake the building and sound like they were about to land on the roof. I have noticed a small increase about a year ago but they have greatly increased in the last 4 or 5 months. I live in Lewis county Washington.

Has anybody else noticed this were they live? Does anybody have an idea what is going on. Any military people here that are allowed to say what is going on?

It just seems a little creepy. Just tell me if I am being paranoid. I can handle it if you do.

1. You live close to Fort Lewis

Sounds like either a big exercise or increased training

3. I have never heard them do it even close to this much.

Do they train to get as close as possible to civilian homes without hitting anything?

2. We live near Camp LeJeune.

Some nights it sounds like they are landing on our roof they are so low. The retired Marines call it the sound of freedom.

6. The US

On a lot of VA hospital entrances, you will see a plaque that reads, "Where the price of Freedom Can Be Seen.". Inside, the ones that get me the most are young women in wheelchairs who have lost their legs and have a baby carrier on their chest. Of course, trump would just say they knew what they signed up for.
