Published on April 25, 2014 with No Comments

Emerald Warrior-14 is an annual joint exercise hosted by the Air Force Special Operations Command based out of Hurlburt Field in northwest Florida and could create quite a stir in the region.

Air Force Special Operations Command is hosting Emerald Warrior April 28 through May 9, an annual, joint exercise to train special operations forces, conventional, inter-agency and partner nation forces in combat scenarios focused on integrated tactics and multi-service command and control.

Training events for Emerald Warrior will take place on ranges in the Southeast U.S. at Hurlburt Field, Eglin Air Force Base and Apalachicola in Florida; Camp Shelby and Stennis in Mississippi; Pelham Range in Alabama; and Melrose Range in New Mexico.

Residents may see an increase in military activity locally to include a higher than usual number of military vehicles and aircraft noise during the nighttime hours. Residents may also hear simulated munitions fire. All training occurs at designated sites with the permission of property owners and local authorities.

Part of the Eglin range is located along Highway 87 just south of East Milton running to Navarre and east of Navarre.
