Something to keep an eye out for
next week in the areas right around the Washington Navy Yard
"Exercise SOLID CURTAIN-CITADEL SHIELD 2012 will be conducted on naval bases and installations throughout the National Capital Region from March 19-24, 2012.
"This annual exercise is designed to enhance the training and readiness of Navy Security Forces to respond to threats to installations and units. Exercise SOLID CURTAIN-CITADEL SHIELD 2012 is not in response to any specific threat, but is a regularly-scheduled exercise.
"Measures have been taken to minimize disruptions to normal base and station operations, but there may be times when the exercise causes increased traffic around bases or delays in base access. Area residents may also see increased security activity associated with the exercise."
[And yes, I'm making a point with that headline.]
