Para-Military Training Facility Proposed For Eastern Carolina

There could be another facility to train U.S. government agencies, similar to one of the functions of Blackwater USA, coming to eastern Carolina.

A private company has plans to purchase 500 acres in Jones County and build a paramilitary training facility.

The location would be between Comfort and Hofmann Forest. It's also near where the Navy has proposed an outlying landing field.

Some residents in Jones County say they don't want a warzone in their backyard.

The company, called Tier One, says only workers for U.S. government agencies would train there.
