The move faces strong opposition, however, from some residents on Whidbey Island over noise and the strain on local resources resulting from an influx of personnel, reports the Seattle Times. The Navy is scheduled to publish an environmental impact statement later this year, followed by a final decision on the planned expansion by the Navy secretary.Navy photo by Petty Officer 2nd Class Scott Woodlast_img read more
