Heads up if you were planning to sleep in over there in DuPont on Friday morning.
The 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division Strykers will be having a brigade run – builds fitness, esprit de corps, etc., etc., etc.
Beginning at about 6:50 a.m., a salute battery of 75mm pack howitzers will fire a round as each of the brigade’s battalions jogs past the I Corps headquarters building. They’ll fire eight times – once for each of the seven battalions, and once for the brigade colors.
Per a Fort Lewis press release:
Queries or comments about noise may be directed to the I Corps Public Affairs Office’s External Communication Division hot line at 253-967-0852, daily.
That said, a post spokesman says the 75mm guns don’t make that much noise.
“They fire it once every morning for reveille” – that’s 0630 – “and nobody ever complains,” he said.
