Driving in through the main gate at the start of the day usually means a slight line, and the possibility of getting your vehicle searched.

You may have noticed Navy Reservists opening all doors including the trunk and the hood. So why are they here doing the search? This is a step in joint operations with the Naval Operations Support Center just west of the base and the reservists are doing some real life training.

"It's great to get joint training," said Petty Officer 3rd Class Matthew Perigo, "it's a chance to get live training and is the first I've done since school. Without this you get hesitant when you approach a real vehicle." Petty Officer 3rd Class Perigo has been serving with the Navy Reserve for just over a year.

The Navy Reserve has been here for three months and will continue to assist with inspections for the near future. They also work with the 110th Security Forces Squadron on other training opportunities like hand to hand combat, and baton exercises.
