FORT BRAGG – Special Forces candidates will participate in the Robin Sage training exercise March 8 to 23 within multiple counties, including Union, as the final test of their Special Forces Qualification Course training.
Students will participate in this exercise before graduating the course and moving on to their first assignments. Participants are students at the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School, based out of Fort Bragg.
All Robin Sage movements and events have been coordinated with public safety officials throughout and within the towns and counties hosting the training. Residents may hear blank gunfire and see occasional flares.
Controls are in place to ensure there is no risk to people or property. Residents with concerns should contact local law enforcement officials, who will immediately contact exercise control officials.
Students will only wear civilian clothes if the situation warrants, as determined by the instructors, and will wear a distinctive brown armband during these instances. Training areas and vehicles used during exercises are clearly labeled.
