    Readiness for what?! Is this the same unit that successfully defended Holden during WWII?!

      Yes, and not a single Messerschmidt made it out of there in one piece!

    Just what the area needs what with all the federal cut backs the m0r0n has imposed, much less in the armpit of the state. They'd be better off potting the "Readiness Center" in a federal penn. That's where most of the folks will be.
