Mortarmen assigned to Company A, 1st Battalion, 68th Armor Regiment, conduct a Mortar Range at Fort Carson, in this April 8, 2016, photo. During the training event, the Soldiers fired 120-mm mortar rounds, adjusting to effectively suppress their intended targets.

The 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, will conduct noise-generating training on Fort Carson training ranges today through Sept. 10, and again Sept. 20-Nov. 2.

The training will include artillery, mortar, tank and Bradley Fighting Vehicle operations to prepare units for any potential missions they may be called upon to support around the globe.

During this period increased noise and dust should be expected, including in the evenings and throughout the night due to engaged training.
