[ARCHIVED] USASOC To Conduct Night Training in Southern Idaho Through Feb. 4

USASOC Training

U.S. Army Special Operations Command will be conducting training at Magic Valley Regional Airport at Twin Falls; Mountain Home Air Force Base at Mountain Home; and Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington through Thursday, Feb. 4.

The Soldiers will use training ammunition and other training devices to make the exercise as real as possible. There will be periods of increased air traffic to include low-flying helicopters, tilt-rotar aircraft and airplanes during hours of darkness. The community should expect an increase in air traffic and noise associated with a large scale airborne operation.

This element of U.S. Army Special Operations Command is a lethal, agile and versatile special operations force that conducts forcible entry operations and special operations raids across the entire spectrum of combat. Tough realistic military exercises conducted regularly provide the unit a unique edge for real-world missions.

This is routine training conducted periodically to maintain a high level of readiness for the military personnel involved. Every measure to reduce the amount of noise associated with the training will be taken. We appreciate the support of the residents and community in the surrounding areas during this training.

To protect personal safety during the exercises, there will not be media opportunities or public viewing of this training. For more information about the training exercise contact the Public Affairs Office for U.S. Army Special Operations Command at 910-432-6005.
