Public Notice: Extension of live fire training into range quiet hours Tuesday through Friday
Expeditionary Warfare Training Group Atlantic is scheduled to conduct training involving fixed wing aviation, artillery and mortars after the normal midnight curfew until 2 a.m. May 14 through 17.
EWTGLANT intends to fire 155mm artillery, 81mm mortars, release inert training bombs, and shoot 20 mm and 25mm guns from low flying jet aircraft into the G-10 impact area to meet training requirements.
Joint Terminal Attack Controllers are required to complete a minimum of two night controls prior to certification. Sufficient night time does not exist during spring and summer months to execute required night controls. Every effort to mitigate noise and complete training prior to midnight will be made.
The community’s patience and understanding is appreciated as the base strives to provide the best possible training experience for our Nation’s Marines and sailors. Semper Fidelis.
