The choppers you are describing are H-47 Chinooks, they are used primarily for troop transport and field resupply roles, but will occasionally carry
artillery and munitions. There are about 6 or 7 variants of the 47, some are heavy lifters and others are troop transports, it's hard to say what the
payload of the ones you saw could be.
As far as the yellow labels on the trucks I am not very familiar with Army or Guard Division or Unit insignias so it's hard to tell what it could be.
As a prior poster stated though the transports canvases are securely tied down and you can bet there aren't troops in there. Could be supplies for a
field training exercise or many other things though.
As many others have already said, it's the time of the year that many guard units are doing their annual training. I wouldn't be too worried about it.
Now when you see very large convoys of trucks with troops in them and weapons in hand as well as large groups of helo's and MRAP's then we may have a
