US Army training exercise prompts calls to police

BERLIN (AP) - November 10, 2010

In an e-mail sent around Tuesday morning and published online by Stars and Stripes, troops at the Kleber Kaserne were told thanks for the vigilance, but no thanks.

The e-mail tells troops to "please stop calling the German police, military police, and hiding in your buildings."

U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern spokesman Mark Heeter confirms the validity of the e-mail, saying the role players are part of a force protection exercise.
