More Army Training Coming To Fort Monmouth Area This Week
Training will begin 8 p.m. Monday night
Units from U.S. Army Fort Bragg will be conducting training exercises near Fort Monmouth again this week according to the Oceanport Police Department and Mayor Michael Mahon.
The training will begin at 8 p.m. tonight and will continue through Friday evening.
"Training will be conducted at various times and lengths over the next several days, similar to the training conducted roughly a month ago," the Oceanport Police state on their Facebook page. "The details of the training cannot be disclosed."
This week's training will involve helicopters and simulated explosives, according to the Eatontown Borough website. Residents in Tinton Falls, Eatontown, Oceanport, Shrewsbury and West Long Branch can expect to hear these types of noises throughout the evening.
The training last month lasted until midnight, but the police have not given a specific time as to when the training will end each night this week.
Police in all towns surrounding Fort Monmouth are asking residents not to contact their local police about the noise. These departments have already been made aware of the training by the New Jersey State Police.
Fort Bragg is an Army installation located in North Carolina and is home to U.S. Army airborne forces, special forces, U.S. Army Forces Command and U.S. Army Reserve Command.
