US Military Comm 6910khz USB 4:30 - 5:33 ut 6-24-13

6910 khz USB in the clear 4:30 ut - 5:32 ut then faded down into the noise.
Tuned into Military comm between air and ground.
Ground forces calling in KIA's & wounded - both enemy and friendly - grid numbers, captured AK weapons and possible IED materials, NATO round inventories, spotted Enemy patrols etc.

At that frequency and that time it was almost certainly something inside the US.  Combat activities of that nature would be Africa or Afghanistan, and neither are likely to be heard at your location for those sources at that time and that freq (it would have been daylight at the source, a condition that would kill DX on that freq).  This kind of traffic is fairly regularly heard associated with training inside the US.  I hear National Training Center, Ft Irwin, traffic like this pretty often, and 29 Palms from time to time.

I suppose such transmissions would be scrambled as well?

Solarix is correct - 6910 not 6010 khz - My apologies. :-[

Last I checked, 6010 was a BC frequency ???

Rockpicker, most such traffic would be secure, true, but once they leave VHF/UHF or get away from the SINCGARS radios you can never tell.  As I said, I have heard a surprising amount of it in the clear.  When you jump back to secondary networks or resources things often change drastically, including the application of encryption keys and who has what key.

cmradio, yes 6010 kHz is a BC freq, but I often run across other comms scattered in this band, as well as several other BC bands.

Similar comms were noted on 6910. Perhaps this was the freq the OP meant?
