If you live in Madison, you’ve probably been hearing a lot about the fleet of F-35 fighter jets the Air Force is considering siting at Truax Field. We have covered this topic on the show in recent weeks, and today we revisit the F-35s on the final day of the public comment period on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
Our guest for the hour is Retired Air Force Colonel Rosanne Greco of South Burlington, Vermont, who offers a clear-eyed critique of the F-35s and the politicians who support them, including her home senator Bernie Sanders.
Today (Friday, November 1) is the last day to submit comments to the Air Force about the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Comments can be submitted at www.angf35eis.com through the end of today.
