I have been trying my best to keep up with most of the JADE HELM 15 stuff but there is just so much going on in all avenues currently in the world it's hard to prioritize the news properly. But this is happening people and it's happening everywhere apparently. I live just south of Livngston, TX and I'll leave it at that. Here's a website with some pictures showing military vehicles being delivered to the Walmart in Livingston,TX via 18-wheeler.

Livingston TX Walmart Link

Here's some Youtube Videos I could find:





This next Video really freaks me out because it show allot of MLRS units in back-country TX. I served in Korea for almost 3 years in a MLRS unit. These things are seriously powerful and have an extreme range and can accept a variety of candy from conventional to nuke to EMP and some. Why of all creation would the government need these here in Texas for JADE HELM 15 dosen't even make sense. These units are usually rear of forces or spec ops and provide support or flat decimate their targets or small town. The amount of MLRS vehicles shown if maliciously used could even topple the state capitol in minutes, God forbid but I' am just saying. The back is empty is where the missile pods go each pod if I remember right can hold up to 16-20 missiles each, 2 pods per track and can quickly be loaded and unloaded. I remember once during a live fire someone parked a Humvee to close to the rear of the MLRS and when it shot the back capsule piece shot out as they all do and this one went through the Humvee windshield and through the back of the vehicle and out some ways. Thank God no soldiers were in the Humvee when the firing started but that shows the force of even the piece of a blast caps shooting off the MLRS in a live fire they are no joke. What do you guys think of all the JADE HELM 15 buildup and especially in Texas and if anyone is in Texas like me what have you heard or seen.





13B here...

Can you absolutely confirm those are MLRS? That is quite a gew to be parkef outside aotor pool if you ask me

I'm not sure why people are getting all worked up about this. It's an EXERCISE!

The military does lots of exercises. It's nothing sinister, nothing to be afraid of.

I'm flabbergasted at all the ridiculous conspiracy theories on this. No wonder the Navy does their exercises in remote areas of the oceans.

Good grief people, let it go! Nothing to fear. Sit back, relax, have an adult beverage and watch the show.


First as prior-service this is not normal and never in my service time did any branch do anything of the sort of exercises as JADE HELM 15 will be doing in multi-states and conducting drills/exercises away from military properties. Many veterans around the nation agree with me and we are watchful. Also never before in American history could the military operate on US soil until recently and with the current economic/ world happenings and weakness of all our elected officials morality yes we do have cause for concern. Also I noticed the USN medal in your Avatar so I ask this: If you were/or are in the US Navy in your career have you done drills in lake Conroe, lake Livingston, MS river, port of Houston, Port of Miami, etc ? Probably not is 99.9%the answer and this is also why VETERANS and everyone else should have cause for concern, THE US MILITARY TILL NOW HAS NEVER OPENLY PRACTICED on public land and to boot in multiple states jointly and multi-agency. Like I said before not doom porn but be wise and aware of our surroundings. Here's a good video for you with some local concerned veterans putting it on the Ft. Bragg ASOC in Bastrop, TX. Props to that first gentleman, the ex- green beret putting the truth out there and calling em by name, true Brother in Arms.

Hey, while you're looking up info on the MLRS, why don't you look up the location of the Red River Army Depot and compare it to the location in the video.

FFS people... use some common sense.
a reply to: Answer

I do hear what you are saying and I do prefer common sense usually but, being at Red River Army Depot and where these MLRS were filmed is two different places all-together


Come again? The video says Hwy 67, West of 59.





and also even if the MLRS were on non-mission ready or even mission deadline or at repairs or for upgrades what the RRAD usually does with military hardware and store munitions.Point is they wouldn't dare leave even the above mentioned conditions/grades of vehicle wear/operational on public road edge and with that dodgy fence/chicken-wire in place and the ones shown in video were in operational PMCS state.


Uh huh... but they'd leave them on a public road edge with that dodgy fence if they were staging them there for some sort of military operation?

Those of you worried about the US taking over Texas, you do know that texas is already controlled by the US, right? Teaxs is a state in the US, right? You guys are doing nothing but getting yourselves all upset about something that's not heppening, won't happen. Whoever it is that you guys listen to is either only trying to get you guys riled up over his/her very imagined fears, or, those who are stoking your fires are trying to distract you from some thing. the US military IS NOT PLANNING A TAKE OVER OF TEXAS. Pull your heads out and stop being so damned easily manipulated. Would you have even given nthis idiocy a second thought if Bush was still in the White House? Of course not. Think there's a connection between this fear-mongering and the Right-Wing's hatred for Obama? Gee, I don't know..... If the image of Texas and Texans is important to you Texas residents, stop living down to your stereotype.

One would wonder why we are being offered YouTube videos in lieu of the OPs own live video. Since he lives right there and all.
I would sure have gone into town to see this with my own eyes. With proof that close by there is no way at all I would not go see this and record everything I saw.
So maybe somewhere later in the thread the OP does do this and that would be awesome.
a reply to: AutumnWitch657

Yes you are correct I am about 25-30 miles south of Livingston via US 59. I will try eventually to get out there personally but money is to tight right now, I got hurt really bad at work 1" gap tear in shoulder blade, 3 dislocated discs, etc so currently it actually hurts when I drive more than 10 minutes. But I will get out that way sooner or later later preferred because it's way to early still baby birth pangs stages still for the Wal-marts outhere.

Very suspicious that these guys flaunt themselves openly in a most untypical stopping location at this point in American history.

They are kicking up a dust storm and know it.

They dont take breaks, or need little nappies with milk and graham crackers from one location to another.

This stinks and so does JH15.

a reply to: Komodo

31U here,( side note I spent 3yrs of my life in SK in 2ID 1-38 FA HHS and spent 24/7 around MLRS as that was the unit I was attached to and I was one of the commo guys, we did all the SINGARS, ANCD's,VIC-1.VIC-3, and MSE's as well for the entire battalion of MLRS batteries of 1/38 at that time in Camp Stanley South Korea. Most 13B knew us out there as ReTrans Teams in the remote mountains with SK ROK forces as well.).

And yes those are MLRS M270's shown in the video and you are correct that is way too many to be outside a motor pool.

The average over the road truck driver spends AT LEAST three weeks on the road, and gets three to four days at home for that.

We cook meals on the truck, keep sandwich products on the truck, keep snacks on the truck, keep medications on the truck that occasionally need filling.

Guess where is an easy place to get all that is.

You guys would LOVE I-75 in Michigan with all the stuff coming and going to Camp Grayling all summer.

Been that way for 50 years!!

I think this entire Jade Helm thing is being fueled by people with paranoid delusions. Nothing wrong with discussing things like this, but the herds get so worked up all the time, and nothing ever happens.

Could a natural disaster occur some day? Yeah. Could World War 3 start tomorrow? It's without a doubt possible. Is the U.S Military preparing for martial law? No. Time to get a grip already folks. ~$heopleNation

Ya know there's this thing now called Google Earth where you can find just about anything. I found the exact spot where the video was taken.

You can all untwist your panties now. Those MLRS's are sitting on private property that looks like a place that does something with scrap or salvage.

The YouTube video has a comment from someone who went to the location and they said that the vehicles all look really old and they were probably sold for scrap.

See for yourself. Google Street View of the location.

As it turns out, they're not even related to Red River Army Depot but I suspect they were purchased from there for scrap. In the older Street View photo, there's a camo-painted trailer that's obviously a prior-military piece.

First, in your picture the arrow nor highway 59 is inside the Red River Army Depot blocked out areas as shown in your picture.

Second, yes when in exercises/missions/or war pre,during, after it is common for dodgy fencing and sandbags and ghetto perimeter etc. For duty stations that normally do repairs etc this is out of the norm and why not store them on the facility and not the side of the public highway, and as someone else above also stated this is too many MLRS in one spot outside of a motor pool.

The hell are you talking about? The guy said "on Hwy 67, West of 59." Neither I nor the video ever said "Red River Army Depot is on Hwy 59."

Besides, mystery solved. See my last post. You were wrong.

You'd be stunned at some of the military equipment you see in scrap yards. I even went past one that had a Russian built ballistic missile launcher sitting there.

There are quite a few that sell vehicles and weird odds and ends. There's one near Salt Lake City that sells 600 gallon external fuel tanks for fighters, and the shipping racks for them.

The MLRS's are not at the depot and they're not "in the middle of nowhere."

It turns out, Red River Army Depot holds government liquidation auctions. Source

Come on, ATS... put forth a little effort.

It does seem very early for the military to be storing vehicles for a exercise not scheduled to begin for 2 more months.

I assume any and all military traffic from now until the beginning of this exercise will be reported as related.

a reply to: TownCryer


The only one talking about the US taking over Texas is you in this forum, I have never stated the US is taking over Texas. You are the one fear-mongering and you are trying to steer this political but I will stop that here and now. I have never liked any US president really both sides are an illusion. And if this happened under Bush hell yes this forum would still be here. No one here has even mentioned Obama or Right wing hatred except you, why don't you go back and troll the CNN message boards or go rile up some NRA forums but stop your bias on my thread go troll somewhere else please....

Ain't No Body Got Time For That. Please stop the divide and conquer the two party system is scripted like the WWE!!!!

There's an Army/Navy store in town that buys entire lots of useless crap at govn't liquidation auctions. They have piles and piles of junk out behind their store and a few cool items mixed in. You'd almost think they only do mystery grab-bag purchases with the way it looks back there.

Edit... and here's a street view of that place since I'm on a roll Piles of Surplus
