ASAN, Guam (July 24, 2015) – The Marines and Air Force will conduct training at the island of Farallon de Medinilla July 27 to Aug. 2 from 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The general public especially fishermen, commercial pilots and marine tour operators are advised to stay clear from the area during the dates and times indicated.

The general location of the training on the island of Farallon de Medinilla will be on a 10-nautical mile radius on all quadrants. Farallon de Medinilla plays a special and unique role in national defense because its location provides frequent access 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.
