Joint Base Lewis-McChord late-night firing announcement

JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. – Units from 1st Stryker Brigade 2nd Infantry Division will be conducting late-night firing on the following date(s):

November 16-20, beginning at 7:30 a.m. continuing through midnight each day; 5th Battalion, 20thth Infantry Regiment will be firing 60mm, 81mm, and 120mm mortars.

November 17-19, beginning at 6:30 a.m. continuing through midnight each day; 1st Squadron, 14th Cavalry Regiment will be firing 120mm mortars.

This is required training, which allows military members to practice and improve skills necessary during combat. As often as possible, JBLM conducts larger scale artillery firing at the Yakima Training Center in an effort to minimize inconvenience for the surrounding communities. However, some training must take place on base at JBLM.

Queries or comments about noise may be directed to the JBLM Public Affairs Office’s External Communication Division hotline at (253) 967-0852, daily.
