First off, I'm a college student who attends Stony Brook university and a commuter for now. I usually drive in the HOV lane to avoid traffic in my

Anyways, within five minutes of driving on the L.I.E, I spotted three U.S. army AM General M1113 HMMWV Humvees driving opposite of me going west on
I-495. There were approximately 3-4 soldiers in each of them; one on each gun turret, two visibly in the front, and could barely see the back windows
