Booming sounds will likely be heard by Killeen-area residents Friday as the 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team trains on most of the ranges on Fort Hood.
Army officials said The 2nd Brigade is firing at Brown's Creek, Henson, Dalton Mountain, Clabber Creek, Jack Mountain and Robinette ranges. Troops are out training with tanks, Bradleys and all types of ordinance from small arms to artillery.
"This is part of the normal training cycle for Fort Hood soldiers as they maintain readiness," said Army spokesman John L. Miller.
The training is expected to last at least through the weekend, and will last throughout the next two weeks.
