(New York Daily News)   New Jersey residents complain that neighboring military base plays the National Anthem too loudly every morning. Homeowners say it violates the local ordinance which only permits loud music by Sinatra or Springsteen   (nydailynews.com) divider line 88

As a military brat and veteran, part of me misses Reveille and Retreat, but only a very small part.  The rest of me is damn happy not hear it twice a day, every day for 20 odd years.  None of me misses it blasting over barracks speakers while some no neck sergeant screams at me to get my ass out of bed,

FYI, don't buy a house next to a military base if you don't want to hear reveille in the morning..............or large explosions as this a Naval Weapons Station............really hate reveille @ the best of times.........k/dar

When I first saw the headline I thought back to AIT (for you non-military, AIT means Advanced Individual Training). We had this Drill Sergeant who would run outside when To The Colors played. farker would drop everything he was doing just for that.

Naval Weapons Station Earle has been around for quite some time and it has a very good standing with the community. Many from the base shop and contribute to the local area, these neighbors of mine can shut their yappers.

Years ago they used to run nukes straight through these communities from the depot inland in Colts Neck to the ships all the time. Fun times with all the marines around

Considering most of us would run inside every evening to avoid it.............good for him

8 o'clock in the morning----what are they complaining about.  it's not like it happens at 5am.

Is Bon Jovi ok?

I also would accept Naughty by Nature.

Before you buy a house you should read all the local papers for the last five years, cover to cover.

Really that isn't that early.  Maybe it drowns out the sound all of the trucks going by which isn't that the state anthem of NJ?  

I'm sure there would be days it would annoy me but geez what its only a few mintues. there are worse things in life.  

I got to admit it would nice to hear TAPS every night before bed
 
2013-11-22 08:44:38 AM  
So long as it's the Chinese national anthem I'm OK with this

I was down in Ft. Gordon, GA for AIT. During the winter months, we did PT in the evenings. We always had to stop in the middle of our run to salute the colors. Then our sergeants would run our asses off to make up for the "lost time."

You're thinking of Picatinny when it comes to explosions in NJ.  That's just storage (i.e. depot) down in Earle.

Which national anthem are they playing?  If it's the American national anthem I'm okay with this. I love Toby Keith.

I'm going to allow it. He's not from Jersey, but does have a huge douchebag following.

They are only asking the base to turn it down, and the base is looking in to it. New speakers. And no Billy Joel. He's Long Island.

Billy Joel is a piano lounge singer who got really, REALLY lucky.  Even by his own admission.

I was in uniform and holding an M-16 when I first said that, thus earning the nickname "doughnuts" and terrifying the counter-man at Krispy Kreme.

It's 8 am you douche (sometimes 9 am in the winter months in some places). Get over it. Be glad that they don't do it at the literal crack of dawn and be happy that you even have a base to pump jobs and money into your local economy.

The only thing that could get me to visit New Jersey would be a Mayor Ford v Gov Christie sumo wrestling match.

That might actually be a good idea. Maybe they'd finally get a handful of tourists into that ghost town Atlantic City. New Jersey is a rust belt state with a rusty coastline. Even the supposed beautiful/decent places (Cape May, Princeton, Cherry Hill, whichever Orange is the rich one) are flanked by intolerable hellholes (Vineland, Trenton, Camden, whichever Orange is the poor one). And the people are so loud and bombastic. Just terrible. It's a state populated by people who think a long weekend in Miami wearing jean shorts and "Scarface" tee shirts means they made it.

Hauptmann shouldn't have been executed, he should have been acquitted and rewarded from sparing that kid the suffering of growing up in the "Garden State."

Good, please never come here. We don't want douchebags like you. Bad enough we have to deal with the douchenozzles from NYC who pollute our environs.

Love it. Anytime someone (or group of someones) decides not to suck the military's cock it's a good sign.
 
2013-11-22 09:10:38 AM  
Generally, I think this is like moving next to a farm that smells like fertilizer.  It's part of the deal, it's a necessary function to run the business.

I live about a half mile from a tiny little stone chapel, you wouldn't even know it was there... if not for the cheap ass church bells played over a loud speaker system.  In this day and age, I have no idea why it's legal to blare music from loudspeakers.  Granted, it doesn't annoy me enough to complain about it.

Besides, I was in the Air Force. I knew when it was lunchtime because I could read a clock; the bugle was not required.
