Albany-- South Georgia truck drivers are hauling military equipment across the country.

John Swift is hauling this "Dragon Wagon" to California. This 25,000 pound machine moves large equipment, like containers. The Dragon Wagon was overhauled at MCLB-Albany, destined for a base in Hawaii. Swift says he has seen more trucks hauling military equipment on the roads, "Quite a bit more for the build up. We picked up some equipment in Fort Hood, Texas and there were about 350 trucks there. We all moved the equipment from Fort Hood to Charleston, South Carolina."

Swift works for Tifton-based McClellan Trucking that moves a lot of MCLB-Albany's equipment. It's going to take three days to haul the Dragon Wagon to a port in California.
