Marion sheriff on Jade Helm: No reason to worry
from Longview News-Journal
Federal military exercises that riled some Texas conservatives in recent weeks will include Marion County, where the sheriff is confident federal officials in Washington aren't planning something more sinister. "We went to great efforts to verify credentials and information as it was presented to us," Sheriff David McKnight said of himself and county commissioners who signed off on welcoming a small portion of Jade Helm 15 to their county.
McKnight said that portion of the military exercise will involve five or six soldiers taking a Jeep ride from one part of a private landowner's property to another, where they will be picked up by a helicopter.
