Advanced warning lacking?

Classification: UNCLASSIFIED
Caveats: NONE

Ladies and Gentleman,

The individuals you see in full PPE and the individuals you see in “Arabic attire” armed with AK-47’s, pistols and IEDs are role players and/or USAG-K reaction force personnel who are conducting TRAINING. Please stop calling the German Police, Military Police and hiding in your buildings. You will see these people walking around the outside of your offices and near the gates the remainder of the day and I assure you they are only training. Thank you for your vigilance, time and understanding.


SFC Nicholas S. Benyo
