Military Urban Training Exercises during the Urban League Convention?!?

Blackstonian Editor’s Note:  We find it rather odd, perhaps coincidental, that the Military is conducting Urban Training exercises during the exact same time as the what may be largest gathering of Black People from across the country in Boston during the Urban League Convention. Things that make you say hmmmm…..

Joint federal military training exercises will take place within and around the Boston area between July 26th and August 5th. Military personnel will conduct training exercises to ensure the military’s ability to operate in urban environments, prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments, and meet mandatory training certification requirements. Helicopters will be used in some exercises.

The Boston Police Department is working with military personnel to coordinate training sites that will minimize negative impacts on our Boston citizens and their daily routines. Safety precautions have been taken to prevent risk to the general public and the military personnel involved.  With that, training site locations are not open to the public and will be guarded by uniformed personnel to provide additional safety.
