For those who complain about the airplane noise coming from aircraft at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, I have advice for you: Get a life. What you are hearing is the sound of freedom. These are people training to protect us and our country. May I suggest that if you are bothered for the short time that it lasts, get some earplugs and keep it to yourself.
