Navy force protection exercises scheduled

Exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2013 will be conducted on naval bases in the Northwest and throughout the continental United States from Feb. 19 to March 1, 2013. This annual exercise is designed to enhance training and readiness of Navy security forces to respond to threats to installations and units. This regularly scheduled exercise is not in response to any specific threat. It is Navy policy not to discuss the specifics of Force Protection; therefore, the details of the exercise will not be released.

The exercise will cause gate closures, delays in base access and increased traffic around bases. Area residents may also see increased security activity associated with the exercise. Navy personnel should contact their respective command for more information, including week-long event planning and reporting procedures.

For more information about exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2013, contact the Navy Region Northwest Public Affairs Office at (360) 396-1630.
