Arlington, Texas 2021-01-14 12:40:20 –
The Washington, DC region is a bit edgy, and the sound of howitzers firing this afternoon is probably useless. But we need to prepare for next week’s inauguration.
The Meyer Henderson Joint Base announced today (Thursday) that the US Army Presidential Inauguration Battery will conduct an “air evacuation drill” this afternoon in preparation for the inauguration of Joe Biden on Wednesday.
Cannon firing at Fort Meyer is often audible in parts of Arlington and DC, depending on weather conditions.
Training is a practice to “honor during ceremonies honoring the President of the United States, ceremonies for visiting senior foreign officials, official ceremonies of the government, regional celebrations, and funerals of corrupt and veterans of the United States.” Will be held as. A bass spokeswoman told ARLnow earlier.
