Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Residents in and around Ft. Huachuca will notice an increase in nighttime activity this month, as personnel at the Fort conduct nighttime training. 

According to a recent release from public affairs, the training will take place from 5 p.m. to midnight August 11 through 13, and create additional noise in the local area.  

Helicopters will be flying over the Mustang Mountains near Whetstone, Arizona and traveling across the Fort between the South Range and Libby Army Airfield, said Fort officials. 

"We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for our neighbors," said Col. Thomas A. Boone, garrison commander, Fort Huachuca, in a recent release. "Our ability to conduct these training missions in support of the National Defense Strategy keeps our Soldiers trained for operations in every corner of the globe and keeps Fort Huachuca a vital  national asset supporting our mission commanders."
