Looking at the masts on the vehicle, those may be M1135 NBC reconnaissance vehicles. If it is New Jersey, I’ve got a decent guess whose vehicles those are - there was a NET fielding to two of my units and at least one National Guard unit back in 2015.

Not surprised they’d be heading for DC.

there are a number of less nefarious reasons why Strykers are traveling at night. Anyone that has been stationed at JBLM can tell you they travel under their own power to Yakima Training Facility, and that departure times are staggered over a 24-48 hour period - Moving an entire Battalion or Brigade at the same time would be chaos.

SSG Robert Perrotto - Just as you have a RIGHT to believe what you believe.. We may not agree, but we both still have the RIGHT to believe what we want, last I checked. And throwing name calling into the mix.. well, that's sure adult like. One thing IS clear.

This Republic is dying and MY opinion is, I don't think it is going to recover.

PO1 Todd B. - there was no name calling, making an ass out of yourself is an action you are taking, I have no need to call you one. I gave you first hand experience, as someone who was in a stryker company, as to why strykers are moving at night kitted. YOU are the one who asked for an explanation, I provided it. If the Strykers are moving to a training area, they will be loaded with their rucks, boxes of MRE's, and platoon specific equipment, really not a lot of room in one to also download your body armor. Second, what the Unit MOI/OPORD/or SOP dictates is how they will travel. we do not have any of those available.

Thank you for your service, I have better things to do then argue with a conspiracy believer.

SGT John S. - I would be more inclined to believe most in this thread as opposed to Hal Turner who is the original source of this information. Harold Charles "Hal" Turner is an American far-right political commentator and convicted felon from North Bergen, New Jersey. Turner's viewpoints typically encompass Holocaust denial, conspiracy theory, white supremacy, and have included calls for assassination of government officials. In August 2010, he was convicted for making threats against three federal judges with the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, for which he spent two years in prison. Those beliefs are not something I would subscribe to.

SGT John S. - I posted because he asked for an explanation, I provided the explanation, from first hand experience, and he called me a liar. whether you believe I am a small minded prick is totes ok by me - I am not the one in this thread thinking the NG moving along a highway is supposed martial law level of government over reach.

Thank you PO1 Todd B. for posting the brief video from apparently New Jersey and letting us know that your own state Wisconsin has deployed - what I expect are 15,000 ARNG service members NOT 15,000 units.
DHS is responsible for homeland security ...
Thank you my friend LTC (Join to see) for mentioning me.

Percentage of population-wise, I think it is virtually impossible for a nation-wide civil war that would have 30% of the able-bodied men fighting PO1 Todd B..
Texas is the only state with a constitution that has a secession clause.
We have had many local insurrections since the country was formed from the whiskey Rebellion through Branch Davidians.

Background from https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/features/death-numbers/
Here is an estimate of how many would be killed today '7 million — Number of Americans lost if 2.5% of the population died in war today'

U.,S. Civil War statistics
2.5 — Approximate percentage of the American population that died in the Civil War
Record I hope will never be broken 'highest number of average deaths per day (504)'
2.1 million — Number of Northerners mobilized to fight for the Union army
880,000 — Number of Southerners mobilized for the Confederacy
50 — Estimated percentage of Civil War deaths that occurred in the last two years of the War
40+ — Estimated percentage of Civil War dead who were never identified
66 — Estimated percentage of dead African American Union soldiers who were never identified
2 out of 3 — Number of Civil War deaths that occurred from disease rather than battle
68,162 — Number of inquiries answered by the Missing Soldiers Office from 1865-1868

I agree with your assessment, that being said then, why the need for this amount of deployment? It makes no real sense. 2-3000 just in case, ok that I get.. 15,000 in every capital? Uh uh... While I hope like anyone else it is nothing but politics, I have learned to never assume anything.
