Blank ammo to be used during sessions on base

PORT ORCHARD — Explosions and gunshots are commonly heard sounds throughout Kitsap County if social media reports are correct. Not surprisingly, many of them originate from Naval Base Kitsap locations.

That will be the case Tuesday and Wednesday this week.

— NBK Bremerton, 9 a.m. to noon, Tuesday

— NBK Bangor, 5:30-8 p.m., Tuesday
