WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Navy installations within the continental United States (CONUS) will conduct Exercise Citadel Shield-Solid Curtain 2018 Jan. 29 - Feb. 9. 

Citadel Shield-Solid Curtain 2018 is a two-part anti-terrorism force protection exercise conducted by Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) in conjunction with Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command (USFFC) on all CONUS Navy installations. 

Citadel Shield is a Field Training Exercise led by CNIC from Jan. 29 - Feb. 4. Solid Curtain is a Command Post Exercise portion co-led by USFFC and CNIC from Feb. 5-9.

This annual exercise is designed to enhance the readiness of Navy Security Forces and ensure seamless interoperability among the commands, other services and agency partners. This exercise is a regularly-scheduled exercise and is not in response to any specific threat.

Citadel Shield-Solid Curtain 2018 is of vital importance to our ability to execute the Navy's mission in support of homeland defense and to protect our people, equipment and facilities in situations that pose a significant and immediate threat. 

Measures have been taken to minimize disruptions within local communities and base operations but there may be times when the exercise causes increased base traffic or delays in base access. Area residents may also see or hear security activities associated with the exercise. Advanced coordination has taken place with local law enforcement and first responders to minimize any inconveniences.

Navy Installations Command's 53,000 military and civilian employees provide infrastructure management, base operations and fleet and family support to 71 installations around the world.
