Living 15 minutes from the back gate of Camp Pendleton MCB, I’m given  a front row seat during their munitions exercises.

Well, I can’t actually “see” the exercises but I can sure hear and feel them! Sometimes the entire house shakes,  and On a good days they can be heard up to 50 miles away. Here’s some info from their website.
