We had Army Reserves training with the Sheriff dept here in Reno not too long ago. I'll post a pic:
This was out in front of the Mills B. Lane Justice Center in Reno, Nevada.
They were here for Law Enforcement training. I didn't bother asking why they were here, I had seen a news report about their presence stating they were here to help the Sheriff and the RPD in training exercises.
This image depicts US soldiers in uniform with orange vests like what the OP described.

I don't really see why they would be wearing Desert Camo uniforms in an environment like Providence. If they were military they would have to be in regulation uniform for the locality. And they certainly wouldn't/shouldn't be wearing orange traffic vests. Jeeps don't really sound like anything official, and I don't think they could really get away with using unmarked civilian types.
Could just be a bunch of wannabe crackpots, considering how unprofessional this sounds.

Not anything like that, no. That looks like a Halloween costume. It looked a lot closer to the reference photo of the man at the podium that Squidboy posted.
