    Residents near Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst may hear “booms” and feel “rumbles” through Friday.

    Units from the 1st Battalion, 101st Field Artillery Regiment are conducting mortar and howitzer training on the installation’s ranges, according to a military release. 

    They’re the oldest field artillery unit in the United States. 

    The training began last Friday. The release said the noise may be louder during cloudy or overcast weather. 

    “As always, JB MDL is committed to being good neighbors, and we so greatly appreciate your patience as we train our nation’s fighting force. Thank you!” the release said.

    The 42,000-acre installation spans more than 20 miles through portions of Burlington and Ocean counties.
