Quiet: A Soldier’s Fight for the Most Silent Place in America – SeattleMet

Very interesting story on a retreat for veterans using what was thought to be a quiet, remote forest that now is threatened with greatly increased fighter jet noise.

The military’s plan to send newer, more disruptive jet planes over the Hoh and Quinault rain forest region has unraveled not only townspeople throughout the Olympic Peninsula, but the veterans who thought they’d found a refuge.
