Ridiculous fear-mongering aside, does anyone know what's going on with this?

it would be damned hilarious if an APC gets carjacked.

According to the local TV news, a National Guard unit from Maryland is training the NG MP unit on Goodfellow to operate a type of APC they're going to switch to from what they have now.

It seems they used more than just APC's, there were some heavier armor in use as well. And it's all still stored at the base on Goodfellow. Perhaps they are concerned about civil unrest during the upcoming election. There doesn't seem to be another good reason to run an exercise within a major city.

It's odd that the major media outlets didn't report on this at all, except to say "there's nothing to worry about". That always makes me nervous. Normally they'd have a reporter on site getting in the way with a live report.
