A question for Virginia readers and military observers

In the last few weeks, several military units have been called up across Virginia--so far the ones I've noticed have been around Culpepper and Richmond. The news broke today that a Richmond-based Virginia Army National Guard helicopter unit, the 2nd Battalion, 224th Aviation, has been told that it may be mobilized for active duty in the next three days. And, I have friends in the Guard who on stand-by to get "the call" any day now.

Why now, and why Richmond?
