News Flash From Farragut

During the weekend of April 9th through April 11th the Idaho Army National Guard will be holding a training exercise at Farragut State Park. The purpose of the training is to prepare those members of the Guard that may see active service oversees with field exercises that will mimic the dangerous situations that they may face. Normally such training exercises would be held at the shooting ranges, but due to the judicial closure the park will be accommodating the Guard with the Scott Field area.

This training is not open to the public, and does include the firing of blank ammunition and simulated ied’s. Visitors to the park over the weekend can expect helicopter use in and around the Scott Field area, numerous military vehicles on the north side roads, and to see fully outfitted members of our military around the Scott Field and adjacent areas.
