Marines, sailors to 'invade' Jasper County for training mission
Quote:About 150 Marines and sailors will hold "realistic urban training" in Jasper County later this week as part of pre-deployment training.
The 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit will train within Ridgeland town limits Thursday through Saturday. Times and exact locations for the training are not being announced, according to 2nd Lt. Gerard R. Farao.

"The training could take place at any time during those days," he said Saturday.

Residents will likely see and hear military vehicles and possibly see aircraft, Farao said. The Marines and sailors likely will be stationed on ships, and the training is part of a certification for deployment to Mediterranean and African shores, he said.

Participants will be in uniform and carry weapons. Some exercises will take place at night. Residents might hear "popping" sounds as Marines fire blanks. The blanks do not pose a hazard for residents, Farao said.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
What did we do before we trained on public streets? Multi-million dollar training facilities? The horror! Unless these training facilities are booked fullRolleyes.

Hey, at least they announced it this time instead of what happened in Miami, Houston and Harrisburg.
