You’ll hear lots of noise coming from Joint Base Lewis-McChord this week and next.

From 12:01 a.m. Wednesday (June 5) through 7 p.m. Tuesday (June 11), four different units will be conducting training with 60 mm, 81 mm and 120 mm mortars and demolitions.

The base warns people nearby of “late-night” training, though sessions also are scheduled during the daytime.
