During the exercise, one chopper damage a historic building, according to the Detroit Free Press.
A U.S. Military helicopter caused damage to the historic Sperry's building in downtown Port Huron early Monday morning.
Around 1:30 a.m., during a military training operation, a helicopter approached the building from the east and the wind from the helicopter caused damage to the awning and bricks of the building.
Randee Farrell, U.S. Army spokeswoman, said engineers have already reviewed the accident and found that the structure of the building was not damaged.
“Rotor wash from a helicopter caused damage to the brick veneer along the roof line which fell and caused damage to the awning,” Farrell said in a press release.
No one was hurt during the incident.
In listening to the video one can hear what seems to be 50 caliber rounds fired within the buildings. What is even more disconcerting is the fact that the troops were practicing extraction exercises on 20 story buildings.
As radio show host Pete Santilli points out:
Ladies & Gents: We are told that #JadeHelm is to prepare our troops for battle in Afghanistan and Iraq. HOW MANY 20 STORY BUILDINGS ARE IN AFGHANISTAN?
They must think we're idiots…
