Date: Thu, 30 Jan 1997 16:41:37 -0500 (EST) Subject: Nuclear Weapons Transport Trucks I recall a similar situation to the one mentioned in a previous message regarding mysterious armor plated trucks with armed escorts. As a military veteran I had heard of such transports of nuclear warheads and recall travelling over 1-10 W from Jacksonville in 1989 and seeing an Armor Plated Trailer and Rig with two tinted windowed chevy blazers (one in front-one in rear) all 3 equipped with a GPS tracker on the side. As we passed one of the suburban's I could see (not too easily) a rack of M-16's and some rather large men (4 to a truck) inside. One of my passengers (long time friend) was a (then) federal agent and when I slowed down to take a closer look, he got very nervous and told me to get out of there. He later explained that the only time you saw those types of transports was for: 1) large Federal Reserve cash transfers 2) nuclear weapons transport He also explained that they were authorized to use "deadly force" at all times. So needless to say acting suspiciously around these vehicles is not in your best interest. I later worked on a DOE funded project and found out that this was SOP for weapons grade nuclear material/warhead shipments. Gives me the willies to think what would have happened if I had lingered around too long. Kerry
