The Corpus Christi Caller-Times is reporting :

Black Hawk helicopters destined for Iraq began arriving Friday at the Port of Corpus Christi. Truckloads of heavy Army equipment also arrived this week, according to port officials.  The equipment will be loaded onto the USNS Shugart and shipped to troops overseas, said Al Speight, manager of military deployments for the port. “

I guess with all the focus on the troups in the action, we forget sometimes the activity behind the scenes.
