Smoke Forces Marines To Cancel Exercise

Smoke from the wildfires burning in Eastern Carolina caused New River Air Station in Jacksonville to cancel a training exercise.

A spokeswoman for the base says the exercise will take place Thursday at the Oak Grove Outlying Field near Pollocksville.

The exercise was part of a larger exercise called Operation Mailed Fist, which involves every element of the Second Marine Aircraft Wing.
