Someone mentioned they look "new" as in no rust.
Uncle Sam has this huge group of young and cheap labor who keep up maintenance and appearances of Uncle Sam's property daily, weekly, monthly. They clean almost every possible thing in site, and they do it every single day. It's to the point of anal-retentiveness at some military locations.
I was in the Army, and for a group punishment once, we had to paint rocks (after separating the little rocks from the big rocks..etc...) and then those rocks were put in the flower beds around the barracks.
Every physical piece of property gets attention...heck even rocks like above.

And as far as vehicles go:
It's called PMCS...the dreaded military acronym (Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services).
I was electronics repair technician. I worked on equipment that was housed on similar APC's for example. When our workloads were light, we'd be sent to the motor pool to help out with PMCS. Electronic repair techs weren't the only ones sent to the motor pool to assist either; almost every MOS (job classification) would send their lower ranks there.

Probably sending them to a port on the east coast; in other words, we've sold them to "somebody"...

Folks before you jump to a hasty conclusion let me first say outside of Sealey, Texas they manufacture trucks and carriers for the military and sometimes orders sit outside of the plant for months to a year before actual delivery. What I'm saying is scenes such in the video do occur when the military authorize delivery, it's not an indication of anything except movement of the vehicles from one location to another.

Having lived in North Texas my whole life, I can safely say that this is nothing out of the ordinary. When I was younger I played baseball and traveled all over Texas. I've seen many many railheads just like this one and there is nothing to worry about. It's actually quite an impressive sight to see. Especially when they are carrying Bradley's.

Now, if you see a convoy like this and it has Chinese Military Vehicles...........then I'd be worried!

Might as well use of whats left here in the US and what's not being used within the East.

Just a thought

While I don't know for sure, these are likely headed to Fort Polk, Louisiana. Fort Polk is home to the US Army's Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC). There is another one in California, the National Training Center (NTC). When I was in the Army our unit trained at NTC, which is the Army's desert warfare training site. We had to move an entire brigade's worth of equipment from Ft. Sill, Oklahoma to Ft. Erwin, California. It is quite a logistical task. JRTC, on the other hand is where the US Army trains tank crews and other mechanized units against an Opposing Force (OpFor) in a woodland setting. What people may be witnessing is a unit moving their equipment to Ft. Polk for training maneuvers. Like I said, however, it could be for any reason and any number of destinations.

Just curious as to why there is no caboose or back up engine at the rear. Don't trains with this kind of weight require it?

With all the revolts and protests going on around the world, the TPTB are going to make sure they have all the fire power they need in place juuust in case we get any stupid ideas. Ya know, like that pesky freedom of speech thingy.

The Caboose was replaced a long time ago with a little black box and a tail light.....
These vehicles o seem to have a lot of colours, so maybe they are from different units who have had replacements delivered?
I did not realise their age so maybe they arent headed for Libya after all....
Im sure some US ally is getting a fine bunch of preowned APCs.

SnF for the OP. I posted this after you did. I wasn't meaning to step on you're toes partner. I did the search engine thing but it rarely works out that I can find anything out that way. So I posted with a precursor for da mods.
Anyway here's my on topic.

So the govt. finally decided to to protect our borders? I guess they expect trouble now that the ATF has armed the drug runners and mules to the teeth. Just the normal SOP we should be used to by now. Arm the enemy first then go to war.

Yes. This is a very likely situation. With all of the budget cuts going on right now in the military it is highly likely we have sold some older equipment to other countries. Heck sometimes we just give the old stuff away just to get it off the books. The cost of maintaining and storing surplus gear is a MAJOR expense.

Those are mostly M113 APCs I see there. Those are old and outdated and I can safely say are probrably getting sold to others. The Army is in the process of phasing them out by 2018. Right now Bradley's and Strykers are the Carriers most widley used. I haven't seen an 113 in the field for a long time.

This is what happens when the people allow their government to be run by corporations and the military.


I also discovered a bold and blatant program to destroy the demand for these irreplaceable military industrial complex oil and other critical war mongering resources by depopulating most of the planets "inferior" human by slowly and intentionally poisoning their air, soil, food, medicines and water. and recently (using HAARP) the manipulation of our "weather" for profit.

Despite being blind to global peak oil and soft on the Zionist connection, Alex Jones was and is right about one thing. . . The War on Terror is a War on Liberty. It's an elaborate Global Banking Mafia sponsored mainstream media enforced lie intended to scare the freedom out of us and slowly bring about a long planned One World Government.

The current "War on Terror" is just the latest version of manufactured fear in a long line of contrived wars (remember the "War on Communism"?) against "false flag" (staged) terrorism routinely engineered by corrupt banker owned governments and their military/intelligence agencies around the world to maintain perpetual wars to enrich the Global Banking Mafia (central bank network) that supply the money (at interest) and arms to countries to fight them. The corrupt Bankers, Corporations and Governments have been scaring, robbing, poisoning and killing millions of innocent people for power and profit for a very long time and have used the corporate controlled mainstream media to distract the public and cover up their tracks.

Source and rest of article: nwosurvivalguide.blogspot.com...


This occurred because people allowed themselves to be manipulated (again) by fear as well as instead of channel surfing, watching dancing with the stars, reading your twilight novels and all the rest of the garbage you have allowed to distract you - you all should have been paying attention and researching as to what has been going on the last 60 years.

Welcome to the New World Order.

THE US.Army have sold 586 M113A2's to Iraq (to be delivered in July)...
They're probably on their way to Anniston, Alabama; to be refurnished and repainted.

some of the big mortar guns i seen did not seem to be in working condition , neather did some of the hummers , they are moving allot of equipment ,and its all outdated ,and why are they moving it east? is their some kind of bone yard for used military equipment in the east ? , also this is the first time that i have ever seen them move this stuff and have lived here in saramento for a long time , its just strange when you see this kind of stuff ...kind of makes you wonder ,

will see how much stuff is being moved , hopefully more people will come forward on the thread and maybe we can start building somthing here
All the military equipment is accounted for. Be it for Salvage, Re-use, Cannibalization or just smelt it to manufacture future weapons. This happens over a period of time when the equipment is officially designated as such.

Noticed something odd today.Our local government building ,we have many but this one is located close to churchill downs,was loaded to the hilt with police cars.And also police pickup trucks with guys in green camo loaded in full gear,including big rifles all sitting in the back of them. And a special ops van racing with lights on to the same spot.
Now ,I drive by this place to and from work everday.There usually police cars there,lot might be full sometimes,but they were at least three or more times that today.I know there are some posters from here that probably live not to far from if they could confirm or deny it,please.
So I thought,well may there is some crazy guy barracaded in his house and they are going to get him.Or maybe it was some sort of training exercise.
I don't know.
I searched all the local media,and found no breaking news on anything,yet.
It was just really odd with fully geared ,looked like national guard,with green camo in the back of those trucks.
So,I don't know what was going on.Just throwing that out there.

Oh heck man I never care it all good brudda as the main thing is to simply get the "message" out ya know? Just hope that when you do you do not get people sending you messages like this one that was sent to me for this thread:



Dude go back to GLP. If you had read the comments on this video, you would know it's just normal movemnet of stuff. Please stop making nonsense threads.


My reply to him, which I will gladly state here for the record, went pretty much like:

"Dude do you seriously think I meant to fear monger with that post?!?! I posted it as a simple observation that had been made for people's own situational awareness! Do you really think that when/if the....STUFF goes down that it will be advertised and laid out for all to see?!? Man I am simply the messenger here, do not take what you fear out on me. Don't like it, then get the HECK out of the thread and go somewhere else!!"

I mean I did clearly pretty much state that what is depicted in the video could all just be normal pre-deployment staging or returning vehicles right? Folks...how was it that our country has ended up in the current shape that it's in?!?! Because THEY did things in small baby steps....a little at a time....here and there....it's all pieces of a giant screw the people puzzle here, and unless we are willing to evaluate any and everything that COULD be used against us, then ATS might not as well exist for all we care


No fear mongering here folks....especially when it has to do with material such as this considering the New Madrid Fault/FEMA meals ordered/yada yada. The LAST thing I would try to do is embellish/fear monger some crap that directly relates to that area and the possible scenarios that might play out there. HOWEVER, I would want to know any various possible pieces of the puzzle that could directly/indirectly affect me if I was living there...and there was my intent that's all.

I am GLAD that most people who are weighing in see this as a normal transport and I am sure the many that will be affected should something go down in that AOR are relieved as well. Good

the military ship everything this way. I remember loading our stuff for the trip from wainwright to polk. and it sucks cause some shady supply guys ripped our railcarts for #load of flak jackets and other items, which we all had to pay for.
