Guam: Military conducting training at Farallon de Medinilla

Guam – The U.S. military cautions the public especially fishermen, commercial pilots and marine tour operators that they will be conducting training on the island of Farallon de Medinilla this week. The training will be done within a 10 nautical mile radius on all quadrants around Farallon de Medinilla, which officials say plays a special and unique role in national defense because its location provides access frequency that supports established training requirements. In addition, the air and sea space in the Farallon provides sufficient room for the many different attack profiles necessary to replicate training opportunities in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

Military training will be done on the following dates and times:
Dec. 19, midnight-8 a.m.
Dec. 20, midnight-Dec. 22, midnight
Dec. 22, 7 a.m.-Dec. 23, midnight
Dec. 23, 7 a.m.-Dec. 24, midnight

The U.S. military will also be conduct training at Warning Area 517 (W-517) on December 19th, 7 a.m.-2 p.m.
