I guess this is military related...

Doesn't this seem suspicious?

We were talking about this at work this afternoon. I drill, and work a full time schedule for the Army at Otis ANGB. I would agree with you that this is suspicious, but Cape Cod has crime issues just like any other region. The base may have only become involved simply because it shortens the trip between Sandwhich, MA and Falmouth, MA. Two towns that the base borders.

Hey, speaking of Otis ANGB, any idea what they're gonna do with those F-15As? What's the future of the base?

I thought all the F-15A/Bs were already gone to DM.

The F-15s are going up to Westfield to replace the A-10s.

Just reread the post about the F-15s and noticed it said F-15As. The 102nd FW at Otis recently converted to the F-15C so yes the A models I would think are now at the boneyard.
