MIRAMAR (CNS) - San Diegans living near Marine Corps Air Station Miramar will notice an increase in nighttime training this week as members of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing prepare for upcoming deployments, base officials said.

"The increase in night training is due to several squadrons preparing to deploy over the coming weeks in support of U.S. operations around the globe," according to Miramar's public affairs office. "Pilots and air crews must practice night operations to ensure they are able to conduct them effectively and safely in combat."
