A US Army training exercise that began on Thursday night will continue Friday night, according to Town Manager Eddie Madden.

 

Madden said that according to a notification the town received in August, the training is similar to that which is conducted by SWAT or SRT teams for their training proficiency.  Correspondence with the town from the US Army indicates that the training will consist of low visibility movement, military operations in urban terrain, manual and precision low-weight explosive breaching, low-altitude precision
helicopter operations to include hover, landing and roof-top fast-rope insertions, surveillance and counter-surveillance operations.

 

Many residents around Elizabethtown reported hearing loud “banging” type noises and helicopters flying overhead late Thursday night.  Madden said on Friday morning that some residents had complained about the loud noise on Thursday night.
