TOOELE ARMY DEPOT, Utah – Tooele Army Depot (TEAD) will conduct testing of a U.S. Marine Corps weapons system Nov. 14-18 and Nov. 20-22, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
“The Marine Corps has selected Tooele Army Depot to help support testing on Marine Corps rockets,” U.S. Marine Corps spokesperson. “The test is scheduled for November 2017 and will determine the safety and serviceability of the weapons system.
