VIDEO: Military vehicles shipping out of Terminal 5

Thanks to Jim for the video. As seen on the rails behind Chelan Café this morning, that’s a closer look at some of the military equipment moving through Terminal 5 right now. As described by a Port of Seattle spokesperson, it’s part of “U.S. Army equipment, supplies, and provisions … part of a scheduled unit rotation of U.S. Forces to Korea,” being handled by Foss as part of its interim lease at T-5. Port Commissioner Ryan Calkins told the West Seattle Chamber of Commerce on Thursday that the shipments are primarily from Texas.

    Those are Abrams M1A2’s which have a current cost of nine million dollars a piece. Keeping troops safe around the world through superior firepower, Go Army!

    I don’t know anything about standard military activities. Is this truly a “routine” scheduled unit rotation or is this a result of the poor U.S./N. Korea relations?

Sorry, comment time is over.
