Citations, Disciplinary Action for Contractor, Property Owner That Hosted Deadly Trauma Training Exercise
Beach, Va. -- Following April 2012 complaints filed by PETA, the U.S. Department
of Agriculture (USDA) and the Virginia Beach Zoning Administration (VBZA) have
taken disciplinary action against several of the parties responsible for a

addition, the VBZA has sent a letter of warning to the owner of Pungo Airfield,

these archaic exercises with the superior human-like simulators that are widely
used around the world."
