Navy installations throughout the continental U.S., Guam and Hawaii will participate in Exercise Solid Curtain-Citadel Shield Tuesday through Friday.
The Navy will practice how it would respond to multiple terrorist threats at home. The exercises will incorporate lessons learned during the bombing of the USS Cole in 2000 and the 2009Fort Hood shooting, among others.
The Navy says the annual exercise is not a response to a specific threat, but it helps identify where its forces are vulnerable.
Heavier than normal security will occur at all Navy facilities, with traffic delays likely. Recreational boaters will also likely see tighter security along the Navy's waterfront.
