The U.S. Army will be utilizing 25 North Carolina counties for its annual Robin Sage Special Forces training exercise.

The two-week long exercise will take place in 25 N.C. counties, including Chatham County. Other N.C. counties involved in the exercise are Alamance, Anson, Bladen, Brunswick, Cabarrus, Columbus, Cumberland, Davidson, Guilford, Harnett, Hoke, Lee, Montgomery, Moore, New Hanover, Randolph, Richmond, Robeson, Rowan, Sampson, Scotland, Stanly, Union and Wake counties.

Robin Sage is a two-week long simulation for U.S. Special Forces candidates and serves as the final training exercise before soldiers can graduate from the program. The students in this training are stationed at Fort Bragg in Fayetteville.

Local law enforcement were notified of the exercise. Siler City Police Chief Mike Wagner told the News + Record he received notification from the U.S. Military regarding the exercise.

“If anyone has questions, contact your local law enforcement,” he said.
