Still guessing this is a standard move of one ABCT to Europe as the first one on the ground there was scheduled to leave after six months....and it is typical for similar BCT moves to Iraq....from the same area...

ABCT involved is from the 3ID......
Extremely interesting is this now ongoing......

US Navy P-8A Poseidon "Sub-Hunter" orbiting off the Florida - Georgia Coast where Russian spy ships were recently spotted...

Did Russian spy ship plant an underwater monitoring system....as this area is where US military shipping lanes cross ....

Sub hunter was not in a training mode appeared to be intensively looking for something...

Outlaw 09,

The tubes are used for piling i.e. the foundations for the bridge. The Straits are famous for their currents, especially in the winter and they probably slipped off the barge that was photographed.

Which begs the question why was the barge not secured in a harbour?
