NORAD and USNORTHCOM exercise planned for mid-June

PETERSON AFB, Colo. – North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command are planning to conduct a combined exercise June 18 - 24 that will incorporate several military exercises with a National Guard exercise. These linked exercises are referred to as ARDENT SENTRY 09. Events will take place in multiple venues across the country including Iowa, Kansas, Oregon, Wyoming, and off the East and West Coasts.

The exercise will allow several Department of Defense organizations and some federal and state partners to implement plans and respond to a variety of notional events. Historically, exercises like these have helped both DoD and other agencies review their processes and procedures and focus their future training efforts on closing gaps and identifying areas that need additional attention.

Major AS 09 venues include:

NORAD’s AMALGAM DART exercise involving air defense activities at Camp Rilea, Oregon;
The National Guard’s VIGILANT GUARD exercise focused on civil support with major activities in Des Moines, Iowa and Topeka, Kansas; and,
A Nuclear Weapons Incident exercise (NUWAIX) with a U.S. Air Force response near Cheyenne, Wyoming;

I live about 2 hours from Cheyenne, and even though they are not specifying that my area is included in these "exercises" neighboors of mine and I have been noticing an increase in military presence such as an unnusual amount of helos flying overhead, as well as the sudden alert messages over the cities loudspeakers, which in past years we hadn't heard yet it was a weekly "test" which was done all over the city for about a month.

I usually do listen to the local news from time to time, and I hadn't heard of this exercise, so if I suddenly dissapear and stop posting news, now you now what happened.

Interesting. Also if they had inside knowledge of an impending disaster or attack I believe they wouldn't pre-alert anyone anyways as to not cause panic. The information would also be able to be withheld under "National Security Threat" then labeled Classified. That's my opinion.
