  1. Another great genius idea. Just when traffic was finally getting better at gate 1 after opening the third lane. Sure lets screw up traffic some more especially after raising the HPCON level and adding more ppl to come back. Gotta love the thinking.

  2. This CO is seriously going out of his way to become the most hated man in Southern Maryland. Can’t wait until the next change of command.
