A local area is being called to duty.
The US military is seeking to conduct training in Gadsden County, and now Commissioners have to approve it.
The Army, Navy, Air Force and more are asking for Gadsden County to allow them to use this area for military training.
They say this exercise is designed to prepare military forces to prosecute the global war on terrorism and protect the US from foreign and domestic enemies, so this is no game.
Tonight, the military is looking for an invitation to conduct their training in this area, and County Commissioners will vote on it. The County Administrator has recommended Option 1 to invite and approve them to hold that training in Gadsden County from April 28 to May 8 of this year.
