Joint Base Lewis McChord will conduct late-night firing of a 105 mm Howitzer from midnight Saturday to midnight Sunday.
The firings enable soldiers to maintain their proficiency with this type of weapon system. Increased levels of activity will be noticed during the evening hours, and firing will be conducted from one range on base.
This is normally scheduled and required training, which allows military members to practice and improve skills required during combat. As often as possible, JBLM conducts larger scale demolition training and artillery firing at JBLM Yakima Training Center in an effort to minimize inconvenience for the surrounding communities. However, some training must take place on base.
Questions or comments about noise may be directed to the JBLM Public Affairs Offices External Communication Division hot line at 253-967-0852.
