JRM to participate in Exercise Citadel Pacific

ASAN, Guam—Joint Region Marianas, U.S. Naval Base Guam and Andersen Air Force Base will participate in Exercise Citadel Pacific 2019 on June 24-28. 

This annual exercise is designed to enhance the training, readiness and capability of Navy security forces to respond to threats to Navy installations and units. CP-19 is not in response to any specific threat but is a regularly scheduled exercise.  

Measures have been taken to minimize disruptions to normal base 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. 

As part of the exercise, the Giant Voice systems on both installations will be activated, and residents in surrounding areas of the GV speakers will hear exercise announcements regarding force protection conditions throughout the week. The use of the GV system adds realism to the exercise. (PR)
