The first mention of this was from From KRDO TV news a few days ago :




Four Installations Across The Country Are Affected By Order From U.S. Space Command

The Cheyenne Mountain Air Station And Buckley Air Force Base are among four installations in the country at the higher alert level ordered last week by then- Acting-Commander of Air Force Space Command, General Fred Klotz.

Space Command would not comment on the reason for the security increase.

The order also affects Vandenberg Air Force Base in California and Patrick air force base in Florida.

This has also been picked up today by ABC in Denver:




North American Aerospace Defense Command, .quartered deep inside Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado Springs, went to "Bravo-Plus" alert status as part of the heightened alert.

Space Command would not comment on the reason for the security increase but reports indicated that it might be connected with a possible North Korean missile test directed toward the United States

More than likely this is due to the situation in North Korea, but then when you think about it, why would Patrick Air Force Base in Florida go to heightened alert for this when any NK missile war. would not be capable of reaching that far, yet the anti-ballistic missile base in Alaska which would be the first place you'd think would go to a higher alert for this is not mentioned?

By the way, this has now made it to Drudge's page "NORAD ON HEIGHTENED ALERT..."

NewsMax has also picked up on it, but the article contains nothing new.

* Patrick Air Force Base is a United States Air Force Base located near Cocoa Beach, Florida, USA. Patrick Air Force Base is home to the 45th Space Wing.

* Vandenberg is home to the 30th Space Wing and the Western Launch and Test Range (WLTR), and is responsible for satellite launches for military and commercial organizations, as well as testing of intercontinental ballistic missiles, including the Minuteman III and Peacekeeper ICBMs.

* Buckley Air Force Base is a United States Air Force base located in Aurora, Colorado. The host wing is the 460th Space Wing, a unit of Air Force Space Command.
