Army to be Conducting Aviation Training in Putnam County

CARMEL, N.Y. (April 16) – The United States Army will be conducting aviation urban navigation training in and around Putnam County from Monday, May 12 through Wednesday, May 14.

“The training has been coordinated with the appropriate officials and property owners,” said Suzanne Nagel, deputy public affairs officer for the U.S. Army Special Operations Command. “We apologize in advance for any unforeseen disturbances.”

All safety precautions have been taken to prevent unnecessary risk to either the participants or any area residents or their property.

“We are honored that the Army has chosen to do its training in Putnam,” said County Executive MaryEllen Odell. “We have worked hard over the past three years to have the resources available within Putnam become known on a regional, state, national and international level. Having the Army chose to use Putnam over our surrounding counties shows that are efforts are bearing fruit.”
