Navy Air Station Corpus Christi Takes Part in Terrorism Training

Media Advisory

Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, in conjunction with all Navy installations located in the continental United States, will conduct Exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield 2015 (SC-CS15) Feb. 2-13.
This annual anti-terrorism force protection (ATFP) exercise is designed to train Navy Security Forces to respond to threats to installations and units.
“This exercise is the largest force protection exercise conducted across the Department of Defense. It enhances the training and readiness of our security personnel and first responders,” said Capt. Steve Banta, commanding officer, NAS Corpus Christi.
Exercise SC-CS15 is not in response to any specific threat, but is a regularly scheduled exercise.
Measures have been taken to minimize disruptions to normal base operation. We don’t anticipate delays in base access during the exercise, but there may be times when the exercise causes increased traffic around the air station.
