ND National Guard on High Alert

By Steve Wennblom

Fargo, ND – North Dakota's National Guard is on higher security alert today.

Sergeant First Class Rob Keller says soldiers at the state's armories are watching for anything unusual. He says access to some buildings is restricted ? but none of the armories have been closed.

Air Force personnel at the guard's 119th Fighter wing in Fargo are also taking added security measures today.

Keller won't specify what they are. Keller says the last time the guard had stepped up security like this was when the Navy ship "Cole" was bombed in October of last year.
