22 Now reported:
Following the increase in security alert at military bases across the nation, the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force has canceled its spring concert, that had been scheduled for tonight.
The museum cited the elevated security measures as the reason behind the cancellation.
The Presidential and Research & Development Gallery tours as well as the Friday “Behind the Scenes” tours also are canceled until further notice.
The Department of Defense raised the security levels at military bases, including Wright-Patterson Air Force Base here in the Miami Valley over concerns of jihadist threats in the United States.
According to CNN, FBI Director James Comey estimates there are thousands of ISIS followers online in the U.S.
Wright-Patterson spokesman Daryl Mayer said the base’s security level now stands at Force Protection Level Bravo. It had previously been at Alpha and there are two levels of security higher than Bravo: Charlie and Delta.
