The sounds of machine gun fire and racing boats are about to become a part of the atmosphere on the North Carolina coast.
Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point is hosting a Navy Special Boat Team this week as it prepares to deploy. Day and night operations until 10 p.m. are part of the exercise, and the teams will shoot live ammunition.
Base officials warned residents that the teams will train through Feb. 26, including weekends. The exercise takes place in and around the Neuse River, and Brandt and Piney islands.
