US Army training exercise prompts calls to police

BERLIN , Germany In an email 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 email 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 email, saying the role players are part of a force protection exercise.
