MCLB Albany elevates security after Bin Laden death

Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany and other military installations elevated their security posture because of the mission to kill Osama Bin Laden.

At 9 A-M Sunday, the U-S Northern Command ordered all bases to increase their force protection condition from Alpha to Bravo, the second of four security level conditions.

Albany Marine Base security officials increased surveillance and ordered more thorough checks on everyone coming in and going off the base.

"We have not received a specific threat to Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany. This is a precautional measure that was implemented across all installations and activities across the country," said Base Executive Officer  Lt. Colonel Don Finn.

Base officials say there could be delays at entry points on the base and ask employees and visitors to cooperate.

They do not know how long the elevated security will continue.
