If you have liven in Lawton/Fort Sill for any amount of time at all, you know that Fort Sill can get loud!  I mean really loud. Like shake your house off the foundation loud!  For those of us that have been here most of our lives, we don't give it a second thought.  If friends ask about it, we just say, oh that's Fort Sill.  Sounds of freedom. I admit, it took a little while to get used to it. 

Our partnership with the post is so important, especially to those of us coming for a military background.  What's a little noise for goodness sake?  I say all of that to say this...if you think Fort Sill is loud, prepare yourselves for what's about to happen next week. Don't say I didn't warn you!

Hot off the presses, for the communications office of Fort Sill.  It's gonna get really loud next Monday!

FORT SILL, OK – Fort Sill will be destroying unexploded munitions on Dec. 14 at the impact area on the north side of Fort Sill near Lake Elmer Thomas Recreation Area from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

All hazards will remain within the Fort Sill installation boundaries. Fort Sill asks that safety precautions near the impact area are taken to include Lake Elmer Thomas Recreation area. Specifically boaters on the lake should be cognizant and aware so they can proceed with caution.

If weather in the area does not permit the destruction of unexploded munition on Dec.14 the alternate day is Dec.15.
