JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. – Joint Base Lewis-McChord will conduct late-night firing on the following date(s):
DATE Thursday, March 10, 2016
TIME 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.
FIRING OF 60 mm mortars
4th Battalion, 23rd Infantry Regiment on JBLM will conduct training with 60mm mortars. Increased levels of activity will be noticed beginning at midnight, continue during the day, and through the evening hours, and firing will be conducted one range on base.
This is required training, which allows military members to practice and improve skills necessary during combat. As often as possible, JBLM conducts larger scale weapons and demolition training and artillery firing at the JBLM Yakima Training Center in an effort to minimize inconvenience for the surrounding communities. However, some training must take place on base.
Queries or comments about noise may be directed to the JBLM Public Affairs Office’s External Communication Division hotline at (253) 967-0852, daily.
