COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - The Army says Colorado has been dropped from a multistate special forces training exercise because the unit that was designated to participate won’t be available.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reported Friday (https://tinyurl.com/otrypfl ) the Army Special Forces Command announced the change of plans.

Some people in Texas, which will be included in the exercise, have questioned whether the exercise was a plan to confiscate guns or implement martial law. The Pentagon has denied any sinister intentions.

The Army unit that was originally expected to participate in the exercise hasn’t been identified, but Fort Carson outside Colorado Springs is home to the 10th Special Forces Group.
