I believe it something to keep an eye on. A few years ago in Reading, PA, a black helicopter (no really) was sighted late at night in the City Park at treetop level. Several individuals, dressed in black combat uniforms (and armed) slid down ropes from the chopper to the ground. This was witnessed by numerous people and reported in the local newspaper (The Reading Eagle) at the time. There were calls to govt agencies for an explanation, but no explanation was ever offered. I will do a search at the paper to try and find the story.

Why should you be told? There is another thread about F-15s flying low level routes in New York. There was a Chinook and two Apaches at my local airport last weekend. Sorry, the military doesn't have to put out a press release for every training mission. These days I'd keep training misions secret, the last thing you want would be Code Pink or some other wacko group putting spikes in your LZ.
