  1. Why are we letting in anyone from the US right now? Military or otherwise.
    They have the worst number of COVID cases in the world, the most idiotic leader (if thats what you can call him) on the planet and we still need war games.
    Seriously, the last thing we need is more COVID cases just because of a military let alone from travellers.
