Navy Installations in Japan, Guam, and Hawaii to Participate in Citadel Pacific 2013


WASHINGTON (NNS) — Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) will conduct Exercise Citadel Pacific 2013 (CP 13) at Navy installations in Joint Region Marianas (Guam) and Navy Region Japan Sept. 10-12; and Navy Region Hawaii Sept. 17-19. This annual exercise is designed to enhance the training and readiness of Navy security forces to respond to threats to installations and units. CP13 is not in response to any specific threat, but is a regularly scheduled exercise. 

There is the possibility of increased patrols on and around Navy installations as a result of this planned exercise. Measures have been taken to minimize disruptions to normal base and station operations, but there may be times when the exercise causes increased traffic around bases or delays in base access. Area residents may also see increased security activity associated with the exercise. 

During the exercise, personnel and visitors traveling to and from Navy installations in these regions may adjust their schedules to accommodate any possible delays.
