A Nationwide excercise to be prepared for Domestic Terrorism was held by the US Military last week, and apparently was not given much coverage by the MSM. I found this article from a small paper in Nevada that cover's how the local Navy Base held drill's, including a would be shooter on base. Dubbed " Solid Curtain" an interesting name, this excercise included many activities that "could" happen at US military installations, so that personel would be prepared should such an event take place. Here is the link to that story....

Gotcha, no worrie's then, found another article here, guess they have been doing this on an annual basis, for a number of years...


** Not heard of this "Giant Voice" tool before though, interesting idea...

"Many communication tools will be used to keep base personnel informed about exercise security situations. Computer network alert systems will distribute messages to office computers and the “giant voice system” will be used to immediately alert people base-wide. The giant voice system is an outdoor intercom loud enough to alert anyone outside on base of a potential threat."

Last week, I heard "operations" of some sort in my area. And usually when Fort Lewis plans exercises, they inform the public before-hand. But nope, just a bunch of noise. Weird, in rapid succession, like "real" fire fighting lasting many hours. Hmmm.

I wish they would just give the soldiers their weapons back while on base.
Ft. Hood shooter would have been taken down way sooner.

Any training for defense of our soil concerns me greatly, whether it be for malicious or legit purposes...

Sounds eerily like 'Iron Curtain'.
For those of you too young to know...........

all in all it makes sense for the military to do at least annual training on security to involve realtime scenarios and exercises. many new personnel transfer in and out during the course of a year, and without the exercises, true failures could emerge in an actual emergency, leading to uneccessary loss of life or assets.

as far as the name goes, bad choice maybe? just saying "solid curtain" :no one gets in" lol i dunno, just pondering there.
