Jade Helm 15 Begins

The other day I watched a military helicopter flying near my home – they were probably monitoring some missile convoy traveling through town, which is common in Montana. The chopper was flying pretty low and it was loud. This action would probably freak out a few people especially those who are on the outer fringe – the conspiracy folks.

Shut the front door! Should we really believe this?
