Virginia Beach, Va. – Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story will conduct an internal security exercise on August 20 to test its procedures in responding to incidents, according to a news release from Navy officials.

Due to the exercise, gates at entry control points may closed for short periods beginning at 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. In addition, the installation will utilize its Giant Voice system in conjunction with the exercise.

This is a combined exercise of several departments designed to build cohesion, test communications and response procedures. Visitors to the base should be prepared for short delays at all gates, officials say.
