NAS Whiting Field to Participate in Security Exercise

NAS Whiting Field

NAS Whiting Field will participate in Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield ’14, an anti-terrorism/force protection exercise that will be conducted on all continental United States Naval installations Feb. 2 - 13.

These annual exercises, coordinated by Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces, and Commander, Navy
Installations Command are designed to enhance the training and readiness of Navy security forces to respond to threats against installations and units. The two exercises, each with a distinct focus, stress different areas of the Navy's anti-terrorism and crisis management programs to enhance the training and readiness of Naval Security Force personnel to respond to and recover from real-world threats.

Measures have been taken to minimize disruptions to normal base and station operations, but there may be times when the exercises cause increased traffic around the base, diversions of normal traffic patterns, and delays in base access.

Military personnel, civilian employees, retirees, family members and visitors should factor in additional time for getting through gates to conduct business aboard the base.

Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield are regularly scheduled exercises and are not being held in response to any specific threat.
