Normal training flights are cyclic in nature, for example, they train right before they deploy and "rest" or perform routine maintenance while back in the states. I worked in the Army Program Managers Office (PMO) which was (is) responsible for repairing all of the aviation assets returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Aircraft would return from theatre and be repaired at multiple sites while the unit was in their down status. It was not uncommon for aircraft from the 101st Division to be repaired at a location in Texas. Any area near a major Army Division (Ft. Bragg, NC, Ft. Campbell, Kentucky, Ft. Hood, Texas, etc.) would see a large number of multi-ship formations arriving/departing their home station.
Seeimg a large number of aircraft at a single time or an increased frequency of flights in an area is not an indicator of something nefarious occurring.
I can't speak for the other armed forces, but this is probably what you are witnessing in your above posts.

Not only that...but the government's fiscal year begins in Oct. So many times you wont see any flying activity for weeks before the new fiscal year. Then after a base gets their money, all of a sudden they are flying what seems like non stop.
Another thing, is if they need to get in a number of sorties by such and such time, they will do a ton of flying. That may include flying outside their normal schedule and flight path.
