I am sure we can be assured that some persons in important places are being notified about this and we can expect anxiety to follow.
THIS IS NOT AN EXERCISE NORMAL AND ROUTINE WILL BE THE THOUGHT.
Thanks to the trip from Freeper:
"U.S. Orders Large-Scale Turbo Activation Exercise of Ready Reserve Force Ships"
"The U.S. Department of Defense has ordered a large-scale turbo activation of ships in the U.S. Maritime Administration’s (MARAD) Ready Reserve Force fleet. The turbo activation is part of a large-scale activation exercise ordered by the U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) on September 16. The activation calls for a total of 28 RRF fleet vessels to transition from reduced operating status to fully crewed and full operating status within 5-days. Activations are commonly followed by immediate sea trials."
OBSERVANT READERS WILL UNDERSTAND WHEN I SAY NOT MORE BE SAID!
This does bear watching. Routine exercise? We shall see.
