A warning for those who live near Fort Carson, there is a training exercise scheduled for Nov. 9 with the 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team.
The live fire exercise is known as Operation Raider Storm and will take place at the training area on post. Those who live nearby will notice increased dust and noise levels because of the large-caliber live fire training.
Field training includes day and night live-fire exercises incorporating artillery and heavy weapons. The goal of the exercise is to ensure soldiers are ready for whatever mission they are later tasked with achieving.
