Dear C&NN enthusiasts,
The US Navy wants to turn Washington State's Olympic Peninsula, home to Olympic National Park, into a training range for "Electronic Warfare". They plan to use the skies over Olympic National Park for squadrons of fighter jets to practice "warfare maneuvers" 8-16 hours a day, permanently.The only thing that will turn this around is a national public outcry. We have only a couple of weeks before the Forest Service makes their decision whether they will allow our public lands to be used by the Navy for this purpose.
Please add your voice to the thousands of people who object to our last wilderness areas being denigrated and desecrated like this. Children and young adult's voices are needed! They stand to lose one of the most gorgeous wilderness areas of America.

Please share this alert with all who care about the fate of our National Parks. If this is approved, none of our Parks will be off-limits to "militarization".
