Artillery units from the Minnesota and South Dakota Army National Guard will be conducting qualification training on large caliber weapons at Camp Ripley Aug 7-10.
The community may see vapor trails from various rockets and hear loud concussions as the rounds impact in the training area.
“We apologies for any inconvenience the loud training my cause, and ensure you that only necessary iterations of firing are being conducted,” said Maj. Steven Hall, Camp Ripley range Control Officer.
Multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) will fire Battery (8 launchers) on the 10th. They will be firing 60 rockets that day. Also, on the 7th the 1-151 Field Artillery will be shooting Rocket Assisted projectiles from the very north tip of post to Hendrickson Impact in the south.
