I thought this was interesting in the context of other large sized troop movements over the past few days, all seemingly away from the coast. Maybe it is just coincidence. Maybe something is expected to happen along the coasts.

I'm not trying to induce fear, I'm trying to induce awareness and hopefully some preparation. Do your own research (but don't trust Google, Wiki for controversial topics) and come to your own conclusions.

Go back through the 2MIN News guy's youtube videos to see all the geological, climatic, meterological, volcanic, tectonic and solar anomalies earth is experiencing.

Here is a snippet from the article:


Alabama National Guard members will make history next month. Members of the Alabama National Guard will travel by convoy August 5 and 6 to participate in a major field training exercise - Vibrant Response 13. The convoy is the largest domestic convoy in Alabama National Guard history with approximately 500 vehicles and 1,500 Alabama Guardsmen traveling through Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky and Indiana on its way to Camp Atterbury, Ind.

I saw a thread that had a video of a train carrying what looked like 100's of tanks. If I remember correctly it was supposed to be in the Burbank area.

I don't know if it's true and I have no idea where the train was headed. It was quite a sight, gave me the shivers. If they are moving supplies and troops away from the coast(s) this may be more significant than we think.

Something is happening and I think the time is growing near. There are just too many strange things happening for it to be coincidental.

I say things that may be inappropriate at times but it's all in fun.

Peace.
I wish you all well. Be safe.

Yes, I saw the same video.

I understand company or battalion sized movements - they happen often. However, for training purposes it is rarely the whole regiment or major portion of the division that moves - that only happens for some kind of mission.

The tanks on the train were definitely more than a battalion.

And for this all to be happening within the same time period - just too many coincidences for me.

Peace and safety to you and yours as well.

Indiana still has gotten over the embarrassment of having the first northern city to be captured by the confederacy. Even worse, that Newburgh was captured without a shot being fired. Now, the south is invading again.

It is quite common for entire BCT's to be railheaded to a training location. That equates to hundreds of vehicles. It's cheaper than getting them there by truck and saves wear and tear on the vehicles and our roads, not to mention it's safer for the average citizen.

Sure, but they say in the article this is an unprecedented, historic sized move, and it is interesting in the context of the massive amour move we saw yesterday in California.

It's a "unprecedented, historic sized move", for the Alabama National Guard, and a valuable training opportunity as well.

The active components do this on a regular basis. DoD just want the NG and Reserve components to catch up.

I've deployed often with a cross leveled NG, Reserve and Active ad-hoc unit. It never goes well at first but we always seem to eventually work things out. Each component has their own way of doing business, though on the surface it may seem otherwise to the uninitiated.

This is just another way to get everyone on the same page concerning operational matters.

About time we counterattacked. We've been planning this for 150+ years, bwahahaha!

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Seriously, there does seem to be a general escalation of armaments and training going on. Maybe someone is taking the Mayans seriously?

I remember heading up that way with the Georgia Guard in the late nineties. At the time we were a heavy unit so the convoy was mostly wheeled vehicles and there were only a couple of companies going to support the Indiana unit. At the time we had been scheduled to go with the Indiana Guard to a JRTC rotation at Ft. Polk the following year. There is at least one Alabama Guard unit I know of heading to Afghanistan real soon, they left in June and should be nearly ready to deploy.

Alabama Guard unit leaves Valley for Afghanistan


Opelika-Auburn News Published: June 23, 2012 Soldiers from the Alabama National Guard said goodbye to family and friends Saturday at the Valley Armory, as they prepare for a 12-month deployment to Afghanistan. Sirens and cheers were heard throughout the streets as Valley police escorted Company A, 1 st Battalion, 167 th Infantry to a pair of buses, and residents said goodbye with flags, posters, yellow ribbons and balloons. The company is among 600 mobilized soldiers in the 1/167 th that will deploy to Afghanistan later this summer in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.


That's only a battalion size element and that many vehicles are definitely a larger formation in the reported convoy. It's probably nothing, but it does seem a little late in the summer for an AT though it's by no means unheard of. It is odd enough to pique my interest.

EDIT TO ADD: Ok read the source OP, seems like a pretty normal exercise. To sum up the source it's this. AL Guard is convoying a Chemical Brigade up to a National Guard Training Area in Indiana to participate in a large scale Nuke Chem Bio response type exercise. It says that the AL Guard Brigade is about to serve a rotation as the command responsible for responding to NBC/CBR type events. Previously, only active duty brigades were tasked with this. The exercise is probably going to bigger than normal due to that Guard Unit assuming command of any response to a real event.

Since I have tried hard to make my ego disappear (life is easier that way, but it is work) - my almost nonexistent ego has not tried to wrap my identity up in events like whether I am right or wrong about something - so I will happily admit there was nothing to it. Would you consider it hard to say you were wrong about something? Is your ego in check?

For someone who claims to have a near nonexistent ego you certainly bring that up a lot even when it's unnecessary. It's almost like you're trying to brag about the fact. Are you sure you have your ego in check as much as you claim?

MUSCATATUCK URBAN TRAINING CENTER, Ind. -- Providing recovery and rescue in the aftermath of a 10-kiloton nuclear detonation in a major Midwestern city could be pretty traumatic. Fortunately, the "detonation" was just simulated, and is part of exercise Vibrant Response.


Soldiers Train for Worst-Case Scenario

Ok, so after a little research. That does seem like a pretty big exercise. It doesn't really worry me though, seems like a pretty legitimate training scenario. As a nation we spend entirely too much on defense, but this seems like the type of training I expect our military to have.

I have also found this "exercise" interesting.... I found this article : smallwarsjournal.com... to be a bit disturbing to say the least.... especially with the new madrid in such proximity, the eq's happening on the west coast... who knows???

It is August, August and September is hurricane season. The real hurricane season.

And troop and equipment movements happen a lot more often then you think, you just don't see them. That happens when the interstates are closed without explanation.
