About 6 months ago, I moved to Kentucky, about 30 miles away from Fort Knox.
Nobody told me about the bombs.
The first time I heard them, I was like DAMN!
Being from Milwaukee, I sadly became accustomed to hearing gunshots.
But bombs? Neva!
I was told that hearing bombs around here is pretty normal. Most people who have lived here for many years, barely even notice them.
About a month and half ago, I heard (felt) my first bunker buster.
The first couple of times, most people around here shrugged.
But, since then, the amount of bombs that have been exploding, including the bunker busters, have locals raising their collective eyebrows.
People who usually don't notice the bombs, are actually talking about them.
The feeling I have is back prior to the Iraq war. Suddenly, I was hearing military planes.
I was use to seeing and hearing an occasional military plane. But all of a sudden, the volume increased, dramatically.
That is what is going on now with the bombs.
