A boost in what the Pentagon calls "Force Protection" is already in place in Southern Colorado and in all military installations across the country.
Pentagon Press Secretary George Little has told reporters this heightened security is due largely in part to the fact that al-Qaeda has focused many of their attacks in the past on anniversary dates.
NORTHCOM here at Peterson Air Force Base were the first to give word of the security alert which now stands at Bravo. That falls in the middle of the threat level alerts.
The Pentagon has said there isn't any imminent danger or threat as of right now.
For anyone coming in to a military base you should expect longer wait times at the gate in addition to more random vehicle searches.
