The Marine Corps Times reports today on Navy Secretary Donald Winter’s visit to town. At a business breakfast, the first question was a familiar one: Hey, how about a commercial airport at Miramar?
Winter repeated a point that is so 2006.
The Times story says:
“There are no plans whatsoever,” responded Winter, speaking before several hundred attending a monthly gathering of the San Diego Military Affairs Council at the Admiral Kidd Club. “Miramar is now and forever will be critical to support the Navy and the Marine Corps.” …
Sitting down with several reporters after the breakfast, the Miramar question remained on Winter’s radar.
“I really thought the Miramar issue was behind us,” he said, surprised at the lack of understanding some community members have of the military.
