NAS Part of Nationwide Military Exercise

Naval Air Station Meridian will be taking part in the nation's largest anti-terrorism, force protection exercise later this month.

Exercise Solid Curtain/Citadel Shield 2010, will take place at naval bases across the U.S. Mar. 22-26.

The week-long exercise is designed to enhance training and readiness of security personnel to respond to terrorist threats.

"The week-long security exercise is designed to enhance the training and readiness of our Security personnel to respond to threats, and tests the processes they would implement in the event of an actual emergency," said Capt. Charles Gibson, commanding officer of NAS Meridian.

NAS Meridian officials say there could be some traffic delays on base because of the exercise, but they should be minimal.
