You hit the nail on the head. Just run of the mill military drills. I agree that these types of threads get old but I do see why he was a bit concerned.

What is it with ATS and the huge amount of "OMG weird militarty activity in my area" threads?
It seems like every week since the whole swine flu crap every time someone see's a couple of tanks or fighter jets everyone gets into doom mode.
Nothing is going to happen, no nukes are about to go off, no martial law is about to be declared, no catastrophic shutdown of the grid. It's the military...
The military don't sit on their asses all day long watching war movies, they constantly participate in war games, training, you name it. There is nothing strange about it!
The first family is planning more trips to the Gulf in the next month or so, and I suppose they need the extra military protection to go along with that.
