JH15 which is a USASOC training exercise in the mid-west USA was just the start it seems now of a nationwide roll-out of training exercises of all sorts.
Midland Texas closed Walmart video shows police guarding it now and chasing off citizen investigators.
"This morning in Albion, MI Driving around i've lived here 49 years and have never seen one on the streets before!"
In Texas, it seems to be developing more and more outside of the exercise parameters:
Just wanted to send in some information. There have been a lot of low flying military helicopters spotted in the Cedar Creek area of Bastrop county (Texas) as well as an unusually high amount of “car counter” strips throughout the entire county. Anywhere from country gravel roads to paved city roads in major neighborhoods of Bastrop. They are all over the place…
They are black strips they put across the road to monitor traffic patterns. Typically it’s only done on gravel roads to determine if they need to be paved. Over the past 2 weeks they have been all over the county… In neighborhoods such as ColoVista, Tahitian Village, Riverside Grove and Hunter’s Crossing as well as out in the more rural areas. I’ve lived here for almost 20 years and have never seen this many.
