Lots Of Military Equipment Being Moved South On The East Coast... Anyone Have Info??



  Reader Bill sent in this email earlier and was wondering if any of TFI's reader's have seen

or heard anything on this?



Irish,

Driving home on Friday from NC I saw tractor trailer after tractor trailer loaded with Humvees;s  armored vehicles . Some had artillery with them. I saw two brand new white armored units with UN lettering on them. I have been driving up and down I 81 for the last 6 years and have never seen this volume of military equipment being moved by truck like this.  All were moving south!  I was wondering if any of your readers have any intel on this?

Thanks,

Bill

Thanks Bill,


Please leave a comment if you have any info.

  1. Without further evidence, I'd say that it's time for the Two Weeks of camp for the Guard.

    Everyone who freaks about large equipment moves NEVER bother to get bumper numbers!

    Like the pics of a huge number of M113's being rail-headed out. No two tracks had the same unit numbers or camouflage pattern in some cases. They were all headed to the storage depot to be refurbed and sold via FMS.

  2. They heard the Earl Schieb Auto Body/Paint in Lackluster, Ga had a two for one paint sale?

  3. I live on the West coast and travel through Nv, Ca, Ut, AZ etc all the time. I see these type of things on a regular basis. Trainloads of tanks, Humvees and APCs. Or truck after truck with similar (never tanks) equipment. Where are they going? To repair depots where they are repaired and (sometimes) stored until needed. Sometimes they are shipped right back to a unit that needs them. Here are some of the depots:


    Anniston Army Depot, AL
    Blue Grass Army Depot, KY
    Corpus Christi Army Depot (CCAD), TX
    Deseret Chemical Depot, UT
    Letterkenny Army Depot, PA
    Red River Army Depot (RRAD), TX
    Sierra Army Depot, CA
    Tobyhanna Army Depot, PA
    Tooele Army Depot, UT

    1. Are you going around to different blogs and attacking people's narratives, DS? Huh. Strange.

    3. I know he does. You could learn something from him, little girl. You've learned nothing from me.

  5. A friend showed me some pictures today of a huge convoy near Lexington, Ky. It was a very large convoy and mainly consisted of APC type vehicles with U.N. markings.

  6. Wheeled or tracked? Army or Marines?

    It really does matter.

    Define "huge" convoy. A company level movement could seem very "huge" to someone who'd never seen one before. How many vehicles, of what kind and what mix?

    Otherwise it's simply saying, "I saw some birds" at the beginning of duck season.

    1. See my other comment at below for clarification . You are correct. The description I got was vague. It was late, I should have ascertained further information before posting. By the way the vehicles were wheeled. They looked to be a MRAP variant. They were painted white with UN on the side and rear doors.

  7. Hi Irish,
    Back a few cases of Beer ago I lived in Roseboro, NC on NC rt. 24 which came off the I 40 from Wilmington , went thru Roseboro and right into Ft. Bragg in Fayetteville!! Yup, convoy's of every magnitude passed thru town!! Both ways!! All the time!! Only 2 lanes "Country Road" stuff!! The stuff Country songs are made of...Now the Fed/State widened the "24" got 4 lanes Big bridges etc!! YUP!! Our Army "On The Move!!" granted, there can be something "Clandestine" going on...but who knows?? like the man above said...'Got License plate numbers??
    'Yer local Armed Infidel!!,

  8. What the fuck are "UN marking"? Note that no one said the vehicles where marked "UN" but had "UN markings". Absent two big stensled letters U and N how would you know that any particular markings are UN?

  9. Clarification: Vehicles were near East Lexington, VA. Vehicles were not in a military type convoy, but being hauled on flatbed trailers, Not sure of the number ("too many too count" is broad), Vehicles were marked with a big ass U and big ass N on the door (white vehicle with a a black UN on the doors maybe anon can figure it out).
    My first guess is that these vehicles were built by a contractor and being hauled from the point of manufacture to a port for shipment to some third world hellhole and our taxpayers dollars are paying the bill.

  10. We left isle of palms yesterday headed home from vacation. Its a little island off coast of Charleston s Carolina. On interstate 20 around the Augusta ga area we passed a huge caravan of military vehicles of many variety. Husband says the big trucks were carrying humvees and other type vehicles that they had reinforced the bottoms of for IED protection. It had to be a mile long headed east on interstate 20. Were headed west

  12. The battle for Winterfell is over, and the troops are returning home.

  13. For some reason this topic is ripe for the crazies to propagandize. NOT that there are not military equipment being moved about but the tendency is to exaggerate and speculate. What would be useful is a video and pictures not hearsay. Having said that I am aware that there are some pictures (showing one truck with a few vehicles on it) but I am also aware that someone said the picture is actually from 2004, don't know what's true and that's the problem. But keep in mind that every summer our various reserve units are on the road and driving military vehicles and sure enough the crazies speculate that they are taking over the country and implementing martial law.

  14. Maybe they were headed to Augusta for the golf. :)

    1. Notice that this is NOT a video of vehicles it is a couple of pictures and a long biased commentary. That is the point a dearth of information and a wealth of opinion and propaganda. What is lacking is context. And these are the same pictures that one commenter claimed were actually old pictures from years ago. What is the truth? Absolutely no way to know.

    2. They’re built at the BAE Systems plant in York, PA. From there they carried down I-81 to I-77, and then I-95 towards the port of Savannah to be shipped overseas.

  17. The responses seem to have gotten intangeld, is that even a word? We did not see anything white. What we saw were flat beds carrying all kinds of vehicles. Don't know what they are for or why. Hubby says it was at least a mile long if not longer. I didn't respond to this post with the idea of martial law. Just telling what we saw. No....didn't take pics or get tag numbers. That's kinda hard to do when your going the opposite direction on the interstate. But hey...like I said...maybe they are going for the golf. Gotta go now..my pooch is eating the katydids. That's cicadas for y'all Yanks

  18. No telling what those malcontents in the White House are planning.

  19. Without any other indications, I'd agree with those who say summer camp, but we could get lucky.

    They could be after Barry.

  20. I wouldn't worry too much about equipment being moved. When you see troops by the thousands then you can start worrying.

  21. Annual training.

    It would be against the Geneva convention and all humane considerations for the units in question to drive that far in Humvee and MRAP.

    That, and at least half of them would break down en route.
