JRM to participate in Citadel Pacific


ASAN, Guam—Joint Region Marianas installations, U.S. Naval Base Guam, and Andersen Air Force Base will participate in Exercise Citadel Pacific 2018 on June 11-15.

This annual exercise is designed to enhance the training, readiness and capability of U.S. Navy security forces to respond to threats to Navy installations and units.

Exercise Citadel Pacific 2018 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.

The Trusted Traveler program—a program that authorizes Department of Defense ID card holders to escort guests onto NBG—may be suspended during the exercise. All vehicle occupants will be required to provide an approved base access credential. Expect delays at the main gate for NBG and Andersen AFB due to temporary gate closures as part of 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)
