Sunday is a day of noise at Camp Murray

By Northwest Military News Team on February 6, 2014

Last Sunday Camp Murray erupted in cheer as the Seattle Seahawks played a scrimmage team from Denver, Colo.

This Sunday, Feb. 9, Camp Murray will erupt with cannons. No, forces from Silcox Island won't be returning volleys, but rather the Washington Army National Guard will fire a cannon salute at approximately 1 p.m. at the north end of Camp Murray on the parade field. The cannon salute, according to a news release, is part of a change of command ceremony. The duration of the ceremonial cannon firing is estimated to be less than 20 seconds, but will be audible in Tillicum, on Camp Murray and on parts of Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
