Local Navy Bases to Participate in Security Exercise | News
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The week of March 19th through the 24th all Navy installations will be taking place in a security exercise.
Called "Solid Curtain Citadel Shield", the exercise is not a direct response to any specific threats, according to a press release from Naval Station Mayport Public Affairs Officer Bill Austin.
Austin said anyone arriving at Mayport should expect increased traffic delays at all base entry points. There will also be increased security patrols on and around military bases.
This is an annual exercise and is taking place on all Navy bases and ships throughout the continental United States.
