    Another brilliant decision to have live fire exercises on a red flag day with numerous wildfires around So. Cal. Somebody on base needs to get a clue and be a better neighbor

    Please print a basic map showing the location of Quebec Impact Area (and all of the other areas for future burns). Thank you.

    It seems like a good day to teach how to put out fires in war zones. We know you have it all under control. Thank you for all you do.

    Just hope they stay on-top of it. The Horno Fire back in 2007 was enough excitement for me. I live in San Clemente. It is not uncommon to see smoke plumes coming from Camp P. I’m not worried.

    I wish we could close the base, and a hundred others like it. The last four wars have made a very few rich people much richer and maimed/disabled/de-railed thousands of men and families.

    As fire fighters, the Marines are nearly perfect. And I get that they need to train on days with built-in hazards. My concern is the generations of young men shattered by wars we didn’t need to start.

    Wow, this is Fallbrook? How refreshing! I couldn’t agree more with you.
