(NOLA) – Preparing to deploy to combat terrorism,Special Operations Marines and sailors again are undergoing certification training in urban warfare in the New Orleans area, the military has confirmed. The training began Tuesday and continues through Jan. 28, but the nature of the exercises was not released publicly.

Similar training occurred in August, months afterU.S. Special Operations forces underwent training in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing. That training wasn’t announced in advance and involved military helicopters appearing in the night over the French Quarter and Central Business District areas.

Portions of the training that began this week “will be conducted in remote locations in and around New Orleans,” said Capt. Barry Morris, a spokesman for Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command. “The forces will work in cooperation with local authorities and residents to provide an opportunity for realistic training to all stakeholders and minimizing disruption to the local communities.”

He said the Marines and sailors are training “to ensure the highest degree of readiness” for deploying for what the military calls the global war on terrorism. “There should be no military aircraft or helicopters involved in this training, nor is any simulated gunfire expected,” Morris said.
