Courtesy of a Marine Corps press release:

24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, Amphibious Squadron 8 conduct training off Florida coast

"The Marines [24th Marine Expeditionary Unit & Amphibious Squadron 8] plan to operate around the Mayport, Fla. area in the coming days as part of Composite Training Unit Exercise (COMPTUEX) a test of the Navy-Marine Corps teams ability to rapidly plan and execute a number of missions based off scenarios they could possibly face once deployed."

"While the 24th MEU and PHIBRON 8 are operating in the Jacksonville and Mayport areas, locals may notice increased aviation operations with MV-22 tilt-rotor aircraft and CH-53 Super Stallion helicopters. Marines will be on the ground conducting their humanitarian assistance scenario in the vicinity of Naval Station Mayport later this week."

"The training off the Florida coast will conclude early next week when the 24th MEU and PHIBRON 8 sail north back to the coast of North Carolina."

Any one near Mayport, FL? Looks to be an interesting weekend for MILAIR listening. The SEALORD frequencies have been busy this afternoon. The off-shore warning areas have been "hot." Heard COUGAR and TIGER callsigns.

What have you heard???
