Armored vehicles at Creech AFB

Every time I pass Creech AFB @ Indian Springs, NV I wonder what use they have for the fleet of vehicles (MRAPs?) in the attached photo. Creech is adjacent to the Nevada Test Site , the next door bombing range, and is, I believe, home to the predator drone program. I'm hoping someone who knows the vehicles' purpose there can enlighten me --assuming its not a case of you tell me, you'll have to kill me.

...As for the armor, I don't know, but there are trails going from the base out into the training area.

 

Having driven on similar rough trails in the adjacent wildlfe refuge, I wish I'd had an armored vehicle.

Maybe base QRF for Security Forces, ie military police. Or an Army unit substationed on there like the guard.

 

I was thinking Guard or Reserve unit as well. To save money, you have a lot of joint use of bases these days.

You will probably see them on all the base's as we have thousands to bring back from Iraq. A story on the news showed "one" base in Kuwait that had room foe 5,000 MRAPs. and more arriving everyday. The story seemed to say if you were leaving Iraq you had to drive a vehicle out. Robert

Is Silver Flag Alpha training conducted out there at Creech? The MRAPs could be there for that exercise.
