Joint Base Cape Cod has met all environmental standards to construct a machine gun range, and they urgently need support from the local community. This range has been four years in the planning. Our National Guard troops need this range for their mandated machine qualifying training. Our troops currently have to take precious and limited training time for this task and waste it on time traveling to bases in either Vermont or New Jersey. Our troops are made up of our family and neighbors, and they deserve the best training available in our local community. Joint Base Cape Cod can provide that training in an environmentally safe way. Please support the construction of the machine gun range on Joint Base Cape Cod. Our National Guard troops deserve our support. State Senators Cyr and Moran need to know that the base has widespread community support for this much-needed project.
