Military Adding Some BOOM To Your Saturday
If you live within earshot of the training center, get ready for some BOOM on Saturday morning.
The Yakima Training Center will conduct artillery training Saturday 10:00 a.m. through noon.
The military will be firing 155 mm Howitzer field artillery and High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS).
The 2nd Infantry Division artillery (DIVARTY) and elements of the 17th Field Artillery Brigade will together fire more than 150 rounds of 155mm artillery rounds and HIMARS reduced range practice rockets.
Both units have been training at YTC, and this event is the artillery culminating exercise of their training.
Queries or comments about noise may be directed to the JBLM Public Affairs Office’s External Communication Division hotline at (253) 967-0852, daily.
